Why were the temple musicians so important to get listed here?

These are the men David put in charge of the music in the house of the Lord after the ark came to rest there. They ministered with music before the tabernacle, the tent of meeting, until Solomon built the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem. They performed their duties according to the regulations laid down for them. 1 Chronicles 6:31-32
            As a musician himself, David understood the power of music (calming Saul after his temper tantrums).  Solomon too involved the musicians in temple festivities.  These temple musicians were essential the worship team of temple and can you imagine a church service without music?  Musicians have the honor of bringing us closer to the Lord through their gifts and should be honored for doing so.
