Sacred Music Conference

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Sacred Music Conference

Post by Chris » Mon Feb 09, 2015 9:13 am

Psallite Domino: Sacred Music and Liturgical Reform after Vatican II

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral
Saturday 20th June 2015

‘Whether this Council will count in the end as one of the highlights of Church history will depend on the people who translate its words into terms of real life. What is at issue for Catholic theology, therefore, is not the Council in itself. What is in question is the interpretation and reception of the Council. The dispute is about this and this alone.’ Walter Kasper, Theology and Church (New York, NY: Crossroad Pub Co, 1989), 168

Hosted by Liverpool Hope University and taking place at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral during the year of the 50th anniversary of the closing of Vatican II, this conference will broadly examine the reception, interpretation, and practical realisation of Vatican II as it related to sacred music. The aim of the conference is to bring both academics and practitioners together (the ‘people who translate its words into terms of real life’) to discuss this important area, to find common ground, and discuss the way ahead.

Featured speakers:

Dom Henry Wansbrough OSB (Alexander Jones Professor of Biblical Studies, Liverpool Hope University)
Martin Baker (Master of Music, Westminster Cathedral)

Call for Papers:

Proposals for individual papers (max 20 minutes) or round-table discussions (Lasting 1 hour: 3-5 participants) are particularly invited around the themes listed below

• Sacrosanctum Concilium and sacred music
• Ecumenical aspects of the reception of Vatican II
• Post-conciliar composers, composition, and hymnody
• The role of sacred music in worship today
• The choir in Roman Catholic liturgy today
• The contribution of higher education to sacred music
• Sacred music in practice: case studies of music in parishes/ cathedrals.

Proposals are also welcomed for practical sessions and poster presentations

Electronic copies of abstracts (300 words/ 400 for round table discussions) should be submitted via the conference website ( https://sites.google.com/site/liverpoolsacredmusicconference/ ) to the conference organisers.

Presenters will be chosen by the conference committee. The committee will be seeking abstracts that best address the central themes of the conference. Selected papers may be invited for inclusion in a projected volume to be based upon the conference proceedings.

Abstract submissions are due by March 28th, 2015 and acceptances will be made by April 17th 2015.

Conference organisers:

Prof. Tassilo Erhardt erhardt at hope.ac.uk
Dr Christopher McElroy mcelroc at hope.ac.uk

Thanks Chris - I've only just spotted this and it looks v interesting. What are the details for non-participants (i.e. interested parties, not for participating but for listening), such as parish DoMs/organists like me?

This was an excellent conference. Dom Henry Wansborough's keynote was terrific. The trustees should consider asking him to deliver the Crichton Lecture next year.
