Reviews

A welcomed addition to the fields of religious studies and music.... Highly recommended.''--L. Smith "CHOICE, June 2007 " "A welcomed addition to the fields of religious studies and music.... Highly recommended."--L. Smith "CHOICE " "Guy L. Beck's scholarly and innovative book explores religion through music. It elevates and emphasizes the critical role of musical activity in religious life. Rather than discussing music as an aesthetic supplement to religion, Beck's book takes the approach that music is not incidental in religious practice but is a sacred treasure central to the growth and sustenance of world religions.Sacred Sound promises to be a milestone in the growing cross-disciplinary study of religion and music and includes a CD of musical examples."--Greg Hansen "BYU Studies (Brigham Young University), 47:1 " Guy L.
