Praise Chorus

   American congregational songs first noted in the 1940s rooted in the Pentecostal and charismatic movements, characterized by simple periodic melodies and refrains and very slow harmonic rhythms suitable for guitar accompaniment. In recent decades, a "praise band" composed of piano, drum set, synthesizers, sequencers, and various melodic instruments may accompany praise songs in large churches, varying the orchestration from song to song.
