I think you question means: What is the history of Contemporary Worship. Worship has always been a part of the Scripture (Hebrew & Bible). PRAISE - The Bible uses words like "Praise God with instruments", "Shout Praises to his Name". Praise is a celebration of God and giving him honor. Praise takes on many forms; formal hymns or contemporary worship or dance and shouting. It is giving glory to God for who He is and what he has done. WORSHIP - Worship is more of a reverance and awe of God. We use the term "worship the King" even for earthly men which usually means to kneel down or prostrate yourself before a throne. Spiritual worship usually takes the form of bowing down before God. In Revelations, the Elders bow down and worship saying "Holy, Holy, Holy". Today, we worship God sometimes in music at a time when we are in awe and weeping before God who touches our heart.
Modern Contemporary Worship did only arise within the last 50 years or so. I consider this to be congregational praise accompanied with guitar and modern electronic instruments. Maybe that is not what you refer to.

Music is an important part of worship and praise to God. Most of the verses about music talk about singing, but some mention instruments. Perhaps the best-known is Psalm 150: " Praise the LORD.
