CATH 158 - Music in Catholic Worship
Sacred music has held a central role in Christian Worship since the time of Christ, from chant to hymns and songs to choral mass settings. The Catholic Imagination engages us in how we think about our experiences of worship and in how we define the role of music. In this class we will explore the place of sacred music in the Church through an exploration of its history and function in the liturgy. Special emphasis will be on the various music expressions following the reforms of the liturgy at the Second Vatican Council. We will examine the question of what role music has fulfilled in the past and what role music fulfills today.
