Music and the Western Church FCH205

Hobart

Note:

Knowledge of basic music terminology highly recommended

Introduction

This unit examines the role that music has played in the Western Church from the pre‐Reformation period to the present day. Focusing on specific topics, it considers a range of musical styles and usages that have developed in response to socio‐cultural and religious debates from Gregorian chant and Anglican anthems to Gospel music and contemporary Christian music. Historical and modern debates concerning the function of music in liturgy and the role of the church musician in worship will also be explored.
