No one other than Kendrick has delved so deeply into the relationship between sacred music; its function within the larger spiritual sphere of religious art; its relationship to changing attitudes toward spiritual experience and expression; and the manner in which those attitudes differ from one monastic sect to another, or among various kinds of ecclesiastical institutions. " -Jeffrey Kurtzman, author of The Monteverdi Vespers of 1610: Music, Context, Performance. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0253011566
A defining moment in Catholic life in early modern Europe, Holy Week brought together the faithful to commemorate the passion, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this study of ritual and music, Robert L. Kendrick investigates the impact of the music used during the Paschal Triduum on European cultures during the mid-16th century, when devotional trends surrounding liturgical music were established; through the 17th century, which saw the diffusion of the repertory at the height of the Catholic Reformation; and finally into the early 18th century, when a change in aesthetics led to an eventual decline of its importance. By considering such issues as stylistic traditions, trends in scriptural exegesis, performance space, and customs of meditation and expression, Kendrick enables us to imagine the music in the places where it was performed.
