The richness of the tradition of liturgical music seems to assume that the music has the capacity to foster our spiritual relationship with God.  Dr. Steven Plank, Professor of Musicology and Director of Collegium Musicum, Oberlin College, will look at some of the historical underpinnings of this assumption–the theologians, clerics, historians, and poets weigh in–and consider various forms this pathway might take, especially focusing on the difference between music as content and music as a dynamic process.
