History of Sacred Music
The History of Sacred Music course provides a survey of the historical role of music in worship from its roots in the Old Testament to the present day. Landmark repertoire will be explored within the framework of turning-points in ecclesiastical history. While the class will focus primarily on Christian music in the western world, cross-cultural influences will also be explored. This is a ten week course comprised of weekly lectures, readings, and music listening assignments; students are also required to participate in a minimum of 3 online discussions and will be evaluated through midterm and final examinations.
