CM 503: Church Musicians Workshop

Alexander Pryor, MDiv

Course Description

This course is built upon the Church Musicians Workshop residential intensive program offered at Nashotah House. Drawing upon the hands-on coaching and group masterclasses of the CMW, this course adds assigned reading, a research assignment, and guided service planning assignments, students will appreciate the history and breadth of practice in contemporary sacred music and liturgy and reflectively plan a series of Sunday-morning liturgies based on a narrative understanding of the liturgy (liturgy as proclamation), using the approved sources and texts of their jurisdiction. Building on the tracks offered in the CMW, students work towards mastery of the chanted music expected of officiants/celebrants/liturgical presidents and planning appropriate music for a variety of contexts using the "Liturgical Soundtrack" approach.
