Description

Students will read and discuss significant Bible passages that have inspired music. We will hear and analyze different arrangements some vocal and some purely instrumental to understand how the composer interprets the text through music. Examples include the book of Genesis as set by Haydn in the oratorio The Creation and interpreted by Milhaud in the ballet La Creation du Monde.
