30 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: The Western Christian chant tradition is a rich resource for students of both music and theology. This module offers such students the chance to engage in detailed study of this tradition as well as Christian patristic writings about music and relevant medieval theological texts. Analysis of textual material will be complemented by practical reflection derived from performing parts of the chant repertoire. Consideration will also be given to what is required if music is to be a vehicle for theological articulation.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Seminars, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work
