The Mennonites are the direct descendants of the 16th century Anabaptists. You can learn more about the Mennonites and Anabaptists by reading the various articles we have on our Anabaptist History pages.
Conservative Mennonite churches sing without musical accompaniment. This was the practice of the early church, and this practice is generally known as a cappella singing. We carry CDs of some of the best Mennonite a cappella singing groups around, such as Altar of Praise Chorale, Antrim Mennonite Choir, the Oasis Chorale, and the Smucker Family. We now also carry CDs from the well-known Mennonite Hour Singers, who were featured on the Mennonite radio program of the 1950's and 1960's, known as the Mennonite Hour.
