2017 Issues of the Sacred Music Journal

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The spring issue having arrived a few weeks ago in the mailboxes of subscribers will soon be followed by the summer issue of Sacred Music.

Among other things, the spring issue contained a pair of articles on Messiaen, a pair of notable documents on the 50th anniversary of Musicam Sacram, and an article by Peter Kwasniewski on contemporary music.

The forthcoming summer issue will contain a number of addresses given at the March 2017 conference hosted by St. Joseph’s Seminary (Dunwoodie), “Gregorian Chant in Pastoral Ministry and Religious Education.”

Both issues, as usual, contain particularly cogent and insightful editorials by the journal’s editor, Dr. William Mahrt.

The fall issue will focus on issues in Spanish-language music ministry.

Don’t miss out on the forthcoming issues! Sign up for membership in the Church Music Association of America; the membership includes valuable discounts on programs and books, as well as a subscription to the journal.
