This course presents an introduction to masterpieces of sacred music from the 12th century to the present. Discussions include a work’s historical and musical significance, as well as the circumstances under which it came to be. This course is not a history of church music, but rather a survey of great works of sacred music (some intended for church, some intended for concert hall) meant to familiarize students with important masterworks and to deepen their appreciation for music’s enhancement of one’s spiritual life.
