Product Description

This study analyzes Marian congregational song in the Roman Catholic Church in the United States from 1854 to 2010, focusing not only on the texts and music, but also on the contexts out of which these songs came. Marian devotion before 1854 is explored as well as pertinent developments in the Roman Catholic Church - particularly Vatican II - and other cultural developments. Through the quantitative and qualitative analysis of these songs, this work develops a broader understanding of how Marian congregational song developed, persisted, and changed as a mediator of Marian devotion.

The survey of 120 hymnals offers a fascinating perspective on how Marian congregational song changed before and after Vatican II. These songs were so meaningful to generations of Roman Catholics and then they seem to disappear after Vatican II. This work seeks to answer the question of why?

Appealing to both lay people and academics, readers are given a clear and full understanding of Marian congregational song. Also included is a chapter that explores how Marian congregational song can be meaningful to a wide range of Christians through the Magnificat.

Publisher's Description

Throughout the history of Christianity, Mary has been a beacon of hope to many who look to her. While Christians have always prayed to Mary, they have also sung to her in times of joy and sorrow. Sing of Mary analyzes Marian hymnody throughout Christianity—and particularly in the Roman Catholic Church in the United States from 1854 to today—focusing not only on the texts and music but also on the contexts out of which these hymns came. By using a holistic methodology—drawing from anthropology, history, liturgy, musicology, psychology, sociology, and theology—this study takes an interdisciplinary approach toward studying Marian theology and devotion through the lens of hymnody.

This volume, accessible to both laypeople and academics, provides readers with a clear and full understanding of Marian hymnody by looking at many examples throughout the history of Christianity up through the present, thus shedding light on the history of Marian devotion and theology. The work concludes by providing hope for the future of Marian congregational song, particularly by exploring how the Magnificat can help Marian congregational song be meaningful to a wide range of Christians.

Author Bio

Stephanie A. Budwey, ThD, is pursuing her habilitation in practical theology at the Kirchliche Hochschule in Wuppertal, Germany. She graduated from the Boston University School of Theology with a doctorate of theology in liturgical studies and church music. Her work has been published in Studia Liturgica, The Hymn, and Doxology: A Journal of Worship.

Editorial Reviews

"[Budwey's] academic approach is noticeable in her careful review of the ecclesial documents directed toward the liturgy and Marian devotion, as well as the historical references from the life of the early church to the present. Her pastoral approach shines in the many descriptive reasons why such a deep chasm developed between devotional and liturgical prayer, citing specific devotional practices of nineteenth-century Catholics in America. This book is a welcome addition to seminary study, church music courses, and to the reading lists of our pastoral musicians."
Loretta Manzara, CSJ, The Hymn
