We have a catalog of all (or most) of the songs the choirs have ever sung. There seems to be no rhyme or reason in selecting the songs. The music director usually opens the floor during rehearsal for suggestions and valuable time goes by without a decision. I think the music director should have the all songs picked with a few extras prior to rehearsal. We only have a 6-song requirement for our service:

opening - fast/upbeat
Hymn - Hymnal from the book
After Prayer - Slow
Offering - Fast
Sermonic - Usually slow...sometimes fast
Invitation - Slow (never rehearsed)

Only the keys and drummer are paid.

BTW do any of you play music while the congregation is departing the church at the end of service? I get conflicting views on this.
