THCP514 Foundations in Liturgy

Teaching organisation

This unit involves 150 hours of focused learning. The total includes formally structured learning activities such as lectures, tutorials, online learning, video-conferencing, or supervision. The remaining hours typically involve reading, research, and the preparation of tasks for assessment.

Unit rationale, description and aim

Music forms an integral part of the Church's liturgy as an artistic expression of the Church's prayer and theology. This unit will sketch the history of liturgical music and explore official Church teaching on music from Vatican II forward. It will concentrate on the use of music in liturgy today exploring its function, forms and purpose, and it will draw forth theological and pastoral principles to guide the choice of appropriate music for liturgical use.
