About this title

Synopsis:

Religion and music are complementary resources for interpreting our lives. Music serves the sacred in ways that can be specified and articulated, yet the connection between them has been sorely neglected in the scholarly study of religion. In The Sacred in Music, Albert Blackwell brings the two subjects together in a celebration of the rich Western musical tradition, both classical and Christian.

Product Description:

This volume shows how music serves the sacred. It discusses secular and Christian attitudes to music, especially the use of music in seeking salvation, and music's liturgical forms. The final chapter deals with bliss and ecstasy.
