Throughout the (morning) prayers a large amount of passages speak about praising and singing to the Lord.
"Shiru lo, zamru lo..."
"Nihalelicha... Bishvachos Uvizimiros..."
"...bo'u lifonov birnana".
Why is there not more singing and music instituted in daily prayer? In the Temple prayers were sung with a full orchestra.
I saw somewhere that said that Rabbi Akiva Eiger said we should not have music during praying because then it's similar to non-jewish ritual praying services.
So we refrain from the very important concept of praising God because other religions also praise their God??
Perhaps, because everyone is busy rushing to work in the morning, there's no time. I that case shouldn't the rabbis have instituted at least once a month a musical gathering to sing praises to God?
