Faculty Book Recommendation

Paul Westermeyer, professor of church music, recommends Christopher Page's "The Christian West and Its Singers: The First Thousand Years." He calls it "a remarkable book, close to 700 pages, which weaves together an understanding of Europe by means of music in connection with a wide perspective that includes trade routes, commerce, hospitals, schools and disputes between regnum and sacerdotium."

It can be ordered through the Luther Seminary bookstore at a discounted price of $33.75.
