Having posted on worship a couple of weeks back, and I know others have been talking about the whole singing/no singing worship stuff, I was struck by some words from Eugene Peterson:
"Song is one of the two ways (silence is the other) of giving witness to the transcendent.
And so biblically formed people do a lot of singing as they worship... Because God and therefore the worship of God, cannot be reduced to the rational, song has always been the basic act of worship
("Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, p176-177).

So can we ever ignore singing if we are to be true to being the people of God?
