Music in Christian Worship
- Course Dates: Mon 13 May 2019, 2:00 pm to Thu 16 May 2019, 2:00 pm
Music is a significant feature of much Christian worship, whether chanted psalms, congregational hymns, liturgical texts arranged for choirs or contemporary worship songs.
This module explores the variety of musical styles in Christian worship from both historical and contemporary perspectives and draws upon critical themes in musicology, theology and pastoral liturgy. It will equip students to make informed assessments of music choices in the liturgical events of different ecclesial settings.
Musical skill or knowledge, while beneficial, is not required.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
