"Church Music: The Performed Word"
“Singing is as close to worship as breathing is to life.” Worship is a complete experience. It presents a theological lens for the people of God to interpret the world. Many people worship through the musical word as well as through the spoken word. The musical word is performed through psalms, hymns, spirituals and gospel songs, that reflect the Christian experience. In this course, we will discuss church music in context, Black church music, and different genres of church music. We will also examine the various messages and tensions found in church music. Led by Tarra Taylor of Howard Divinity School.
