SMC 363H1S: Music and Liturgy Dr Michael O’Connor Odette Hall, room 132 Tel. 416 926 1300 ext 3382 [email protected] Lectures: CR 103 (Carr Hall), W11-1 Office hours: M10-11 and by appointment DESCRIPTION This course explores the place of music in Christian worship. The point of reference is the contemporary celebration of the Eucharist in the Catholic tradition, though much will be common to other Christian traditions. Drawing on key documents from the last century of musical-liturgical reform, the course focuses on the “Why?”, “Who?”, and “What?” of liturgical music-making: Why do we sing and play music in worship? Who are the chief participants in liturgical music-making? What kinds of music, instruments and genres are appropriate for Christian worship? LEARNING OUTCOMES On successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Discuss the nature and purpose of music in worship, with detailed reference to the different forms of the songs and chants used in the Mass. Describe the different ministries exercised in liturgical music-making and the relationships among them. Think critically and theologically about issues in musical-liturgical practice, bringing into dialogue their own experience, the church’s teaching, and liturgical diversity throughout the world and across the ages.
