Product Information : The Story of Christian Music: An Illustrated Guide to All the Major Traditions of Music in Worship - Andrew Wilson-Dickson

Manufacturer's product description

Just as the psalms were at the heart of worship in Jewish temple and synagogue, so music has been central to Christian worship since it's beginning. Right through medieval times and the centuries since, some of the most creative musical geniuses have produced works to be performed as part of the life of the Christian church. The result is a great wealth of hymns, anthems, oratorios and other sacred music, from the direct and simple to the most ornate and complex. And from this rich store, organists and choirmasters in churches, chapels and cathedrals throughout the world draw hymns and other music for worship today. This illustrated work covers the entire range of cultural styles and tastes and should be of interest both to the music expert and those who are interested in finding out more about this genre of music.
