This course is required for MSMus students, but open to all others who are able to follow a musical score, without necessarily performing it. Following the course of music history, students will examine both texts and music compositions relevant to the Liturgical Year, and engage in critical analysis of the merits of both components. In addition, instrumental music for liturgical use will be examined. Course content will deal with live performance, recorded literature, and the legacy from European, Afro-American, Global, Iona, and Taize traditions.
