MUSI 180 - The Sound of Faith: Music and Spiritual Practice

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)

In nearly every era and culture music has been an essential element in spiritual practice, offering a mode of expression that is deeply human, yet transcends words; a special voice with which mortals may explore, worship, entreat, and, perhaps, touch the divine. This course engages participants in close listening, discussion, and written response to musical works from periods and cultures that we examine both as works of art, and as artifacts or vehicles of spiritual and religious practice. Kathryn Libin.

Open only to freshmen; satisfies college requirement for a Freshman Writing Seminar.

May not be counted in the requirements for concentration.

Two 75-minute periods.
