The development of church music is a constantly evolving process that often reflects the music of the culture where it is found, and the use of a wide variety of instruments most suitable for that style or genre. In the early centuries Gregorian chant was altogether unaccompanied, but instruments were added to give support and variety to the creative expression of worship.
In more recent times the Christian music genre has developed to allow almost any known style of music and incorporate Album) instrument available.
In western societies this has weighed heavily in favour of electric guitars, drums, bass and keyboard. In the last 50 years contemporary worship music has moved away from using the church hymnal as its main source of musical liturgy.
People in modern churches especially independent Pentecostal churches and other independent non-denominational branches of the Christian church began to desire a more spirited and fresh approach to worship.

New Zealand has been recognised as a pioneer in the movement towards freer expression in praise and worship as the song books of Scripture in Song were embraced by many churches worldwide.
These new choruses were based on passages of scripture and were generally much simpler in lyrical content and melodic structure. They consisted mainly of several verses and chorus, and many simply had only a chorus. The chorus is usually the most memorable part of the song and is sometimes the only part used, and often repeated many times in immediate succession.
This sort treatment was never given to a hymn which tended to be too long with too many verses for this to be possible. The song books themselves usually differed from the full organ or keyboard music of the older style hymns, in that the accompaniments usually only had one or perhaps two chords per bar, whereas a hymn can have up to four chords per bar.
This weight of the harmonic rhythm of the older style hymns made them feel quite weighty in nature compared to the lighter harmonic rhythm of the newer chorus style of writing, which tended to be light arpeggio-type accompaniment in the left had for the keyboard with a more chordal structure in the right hand following the melodic line in its upper voice.
