How church choirs could hold secret to reinventing Islam as 'English' faith


Mosques are being encouraged to draw inspiration from church choirs as part of a drive to develop a distinctively “English” brand of Islam led by the former Conservative Party chairman Baroness Warsi.

Muslim devotional verse and music could be adapted to sound similar to hymns sung in parish churches, drawing from the centuries-old traditions of English choral music, it has been suggested.

The idea is among a series of proposals being discussed at a “very English” tea party in Surrey hosted by Lady Warsi and organised by the think-tank British Future.

The peer, who was the first Muslim woman to sit in Cabinet, has also suggested building mosques without minarets to make them look more like “quintessentially English” places of worship as much as any village church.

She is calling on architects and designers to come up with new styles for Islamic places of prayer to blend in closely to their surroundings.

The event is being held at the Woking Peace Garden, where Muslim soldiers who died in the two world wars are buried.

A local school choir has been invited to sing Muslim hymns in English, presented in the English choral style.

Speaking of "very English," the other day I ask edds to take me to a pub where I could get some "very English" food like (this is a meal I learned of later on) pie and mash.

We ended up in a place with a wine menu.

We ended up eating falafel, pita bread and hummus.

EDDIE THAT'S NOT WHAT I ASKED FOR YOU DICKHEAD!

Okay, it isn’t respectful to talk to a moderator like that but I will answer you, because I’m always fair.

I don't eat, or like, “traditional English food” (I Fucking hate pie and mash) and I like hummus and pita bread and falafels actually and I think you’ll find this is an english food from way back when British were, like, Greek or something....anyways, off topic and ting so whatevs.
