What is the worth of liturgical music?

One of our favorite blogfans has asked me to post this issue because she is engaged in a conversation on point with the elders of her Presbyterian congregation: the question is whether music is essential to Christian worship.

What do you think?

(Interestingly, when we discussed reasons for remaining Episcopalian, quite a few of our readers treated music and other elements of liturgical aesthetics as though these aspects of the Christian worship service might be tantamount to essentials...)
