MUS 509 Masterworks for the Smaller Church Choir
Faculty: Dr. Alan Wellman (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
Students are not required to have previous music theory knowledge but should be somewhat familiar with general musical terms and composers. The text provides a good introduction to the forms and styles of the musical eras.
Description: Choral singing is vital for any church music ministry. With the average church choir getting smaller and smaller, it is becoming difficult to find quality music for worship. In addition, it is difficult to find extended music that the average church choir can perform well with limited numbers. This course will introduce students to forms and repertoire, in the context of music history eras, which can be performed by the smaller church choir.
