History of Sacred Music

“History of Sacred Music" 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.
