Music in Christian Worship explores Charlotte Kroeker's conception of church music as sung prayer. Kroeker's lifelong experience with church music has allowed her to see that church music as sung prayer requires faithful theology, quality music, and accessibility for parishioners. Church music is interdisciplinary, requiring astute theologians, knowledgeable and competent musicians, and pastoral sensitivities for working with congregations. In addition to addressing the overarching issues in sacred music and the church, Music in Christian Worship demonstrates that music as sung prayer requires much more than music alone and approaches church music from a unique perspective, stressing the theological, musical, and pastoral aspects of sacred music. Kroeker's work contains essays by various philosophers, theologians, musicians, and historians who have contributed much to the creation of dynamic music for worship. The result is a work that truly demonstrates how music can effectively serve the liturgy.
"A collection of essays from experts (in music, philosophy, theology, and history) who write from the perspective that music for liturgical worship must be approached in an interdisciplinary manner, with attention to faithful theology, musical quality, accessibility to worshipers, and pastoral sensitivity"--Provided by publisher.
