SDG is an acronym
for the Latin Soli Deo Gloria which means
'to God alone be the glory.' This was the ultimate
phrase of the 5 Sola statements which
summarised the Christian faith as understood in the
SDG Music is founded
on that faith, and exists for the purpose of making disciples among
every people, language, tongue, and nation. Obviously our part in that
mission is small, but that is the mission that we are a part of!
Our part in the
mission is to take Scripture, and the exposition of Scripture, and to turn it
into music that can be used by the Church. Some of our music is simply
for the purpose of assisting in Scripture memory. Some is for
individuals in the Church to use in teaching or exhorting the disciples, or
for evangelising unbelievers. And some
(hopefully, someday, the majority) is for use by the Church in corporate
worship, when they gather for the Divine Service.
The catalogue of
music has been developing since the mid-1970's, but is now (we believe)
beginning to ripen for a wider use. Most of it is not yet on
this site, but we hope to be remedying that. So please feel free to
browse, and to come back later, because we hope to be
adding more material periodically.
