Full Product Description
By examining the depths of sacrality, secularity and profanity in the music of civilization's many cultures, the theomusicologist can increasingly discern how particular peoples perceive the universal mysteries that circumscribe their mortal existence, and how the ethics, theologies and mythologies to which they subscribe shape their worlds. To accomplish his goal, Spencer divides his book into two parts. Part one functions as a methodological exposition to the second part.
It defines the meaning of and suggested method for theomusicology and delineates the theomusicologist's best and broadest possible perspective on the world. Part two illustrates how theomusicology can, and at its best does, involve dialogue with different disciplines as well as a gamut of historical epochs and movements. Each chapter is divided into sections based on the particular text theomusicology has read and interacted with.
Spencer's work aims to establishe theomusicology as a scholarly discipline and a valid research approach to studying world religious, mythological, and ethical beliefs via music. It should be of interest to historical musicologists, ethomusicologists, and scholars of sacred music.
