Synopsis: The sixth volume in the well-established and highly acclaimed Irish Musical Studies series forms a sequel to the second volume, Music and the Church that appeared in 1993. This volume also explores the connective strands, historical, theoretical and contemporary, between music and one of its oldest sources of inspiration, religious expression. This historical anthology examines fourteen liturgically-based compositions from the medieval period to the 20th century, Roman Catholic and Protestant in provenance, each edited for performance and assessed and evaluated in the context of the wider compositional tradition from which it emanated. An introductory chapter examines the historical milieu that determined the particular choice of music, much of which (motets and anthems by Bewerunge, Carter, Greig, Hewson, Larchet, O'Brien, and Robinson) appears in published form for the first time.
