Omschrijving

In our times, religion and Christian music have become fluid. Dutch society has developed towards a society beyond the church and beyond institutionalized religion; religious repertoires and Christian ritual musical practices have been transferred to extra-ecclesial domains.
The notion of ‘sacro-soundscapes’ expresses this fluidity. It refers to the movements of sacred sound through times and spaces. The whole complex of sacred sounds, their words and music, the way they are performed and accompanied, the context in which they are performed, the way they are appropriated, and the attributed meanings that people share, create a sacro-soundscape.
In this mini-symposium, we will explore sacro-soundscapes that reflect the transfer and transformations of church music in a post-secular age.
