Studies in Liturgical Musicology #9: Medieval Music as Medieval Exegesisby William T. Flynn
Synopses & Reviews
In this unique deconstruction of liturgical musicology, William T. Flynn explores the expanding scope of the discipline. He includes contextual and philosophic interpretation that encompasses biblical exegesis, medieval studies, Latin linguistics and ecclesiastical history. Flynn's comprehensive analysis shows that the interdisciplinary dimensions of the expanding field must be understood beyond their traditional boundaries.
