Summary
Provides examples of classical music from the Middle Ages through modern times as well as examines the Bible's impact on popular culture with numerous entries on hymns, spirituals, musicals, film music, and contemporary popular music. Designed to encourage choirs, musicians, teachers, and students of music and religious education to discover and perform lesser-known pieces. Should also help any reader to listen to familiar music with a fresh perspective. Each entry contains information about the original context of the work (date, composer, etc.) and, where relevant, its afterlife in literature, film, politics, and liturgy
