History of Sacred Music

“History of Sacred Music" is a ten-week course which will be taught by Emily Lapisardi, director of music at the Catholic Chapel at the United States Military Academy (West Point, NY).  This ten week course provides a survey of the historical role of music in worship from its roots in the Old Testament to the present day, exploring landmark repertoire 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.  Each week, students will receive a lecture (approximately one hour in length) and have the opportunity to participate in a live online study session. Ten week course: $850.
