Publisher's Description

Intended for liturgical music majors as well as professional pastoral musicians, pastors, and liturgical practitioners, Liturgy and Music provides a solid introduction to the scope and role of liturgical music in both Catholic and Christian worship. It offers a comprehensive theological approach to liturgical music and breaks new ground for both a theology of liturgy and a theology of liturgical music.

Liturgy and Musicis divided into two parts, worship/liturgy" and "liturgical music." Part one covers foundational topics in worship/liturgy, including the liturgical year, sacred time, space, and symbols, ritual, Eucharist, homily, and the worshiping assembly. Part two examines liturgical/church music, including its forms and functions, music as liturgy and prayer, music as corporate praise in both the Reformation and Catholic traditions, and formation for liturgical music. Each part concludes with a bibliographic chapter.

It is a lifetime learning process to discover new ways that musical liturgy can raise people up to encounter God in praise and thanksgiving. Liturgy and Music assists that learning process by leading liturgical music professionals and others to a full-throated worship of God.

Editorial Reviews

The editors have done a masterful job in covering the fields of liturgy and liturgical music. Though directed primarily at the ritualistic churches, there is much valuable insight here for musicians and worship leaders of all denominations. This is a significant compendium of information on the relationship between liturgy and music. For persons who are serious about their worship and about their music this book is a must. Highly recommended!
David W. Music, Professor of Church Music, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Not only a summary, this book presses forward with constructive synthesis by means of well-conceived individual studies which can be used alone or together. They will enrich the reader immediately and provide resources for a lifetime of continued study. Bravo!
Paul Westermeyer, Professor of Church Music, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota
