Liturgical trends in the music of the protestant churches in America.
MetadataShow full item record
Liturgical Music may be described as music which is composed for an authorized form of public worship, and is thought of primarily as a part of the services of the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican Churches In recent years, the Protestant Churches have begun to use Liturgical elements in their services and music, which, in some cases, resemble the Liturgical churches very closely. My purpose has been to discover to what extent the Protestant Churches have incorporated Liturgical elements in their services, to correlate the historical backgrounds of the various churches with their present interest in the use of Liturgical elements, and to find out what changes have been made in the Music of the Protestant Churches as a result in the interest in Liturgical matters. [TRUNCATED] Liturgical Music is a part of the heritage of all Christians, and when it is used in the services of the Protestant Church, it should be a reminder of all that is sacred and beautiful that has come down to us through the many centuries of the existence of the Christian Church.
