A Seminar in Church Music

Hymnology (from the words hymnon + legein, that is, to say a hymn): A systematic study of the origin and development of the liturgical hymns of the Orthodox Church. The goal is to explain the relationship between church liturgical hymnody as expressed theology so as to better understand the artistic and theological quality of the hymns and their deeper relationship to the entire spirit of the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church.

 

The course will have a specific focus (where applicable) on liturgical hymnody related to the Most Holy Mother of God- the Theotokos.
