The origins of Western music as we know today trace its genesis to the medieval Church. It was inadequate to praise God merely by reading and reciting verses from the Bible; one had to sing. Churches, wealthy nobles and monarchs all had a music director or an organist to produce and perform music for religious services every Sunday and on feast days.
