This brings to mind Dr. William Mahrt's 'Musical Shape of the Liturgy' which goes into great depth regarding the integral role of music in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, in both Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms.  

It is quite recent.

Deserves certainly mention, next to Gregory Dix’s The Shape of Liturgy!  Neither one is very recent, of course (which is what the Institute would like to see), but certainly were influential in shaping my thought.

Hi Frans,

 

Although its period of study is much wider than just the Medieval, would Jungmann's Mass of the Roman Rite count as a classic resource?

 

Best,

Dear learned ones,

 

Allow me to do some crowd sourcing with the help of this list. I have been asked to write a brief introduction to medieval liturgy, for the Calvin Institute for Christian Worship. Their aim is to provide a research guide for upper-level undergraduates, seminary students, pastors, and generally interested persons in the field of contemporary liturgy and worship. The question asked to me was: “how does your specific discipline inform congregational worship practices (and this was defined as to include public worship assemblies, preaching, prayer, baptism, Lord's Supper, music, art, architecture, language, cultural dynamics (including sense of time, power, relationality, and more), piety, and much more.)” So, that’s quite broad, and I have defined my field as medieval religion, including biblical interpretation and liturgy.

 

I am currently working on the last part:

1. A list of significant publications (books, articles, on-line sources) in the past 15 years that either studied an aspect of worship perceptively or that could be used as powerful lens through which to view worship.

2. A list of classic resources in your field which either did or could be used to study and reflect on worship 

3. an overview of prospects for future work … an exploration of your ideas about what could be done in the future, probably consisting of an annotated list of potential topics.

 

Of course I have my own draft list here, and I am sharing it with you below. MY QUESTION TO YOU ALL: Could you all chime in with at least ONE contribution to each of these three fields? I would be very grateful, and will, of course acknowledge the winning picks in the final publication.

I am still thinking about this one. I’m very curious to see what you all think is the most desirable topic to be researched in the future! Mind you, I hope lots of seminary and graduate students will see this site.

Dear colleagues,

I'm hoping someone can help me understand the following stanza (from a hymn about the crown of thorns).

Corona sponsum induit

ysaie preconium quem

regnaturum innuit

sibille vaticinium.

 

That is, I am trying to connect the dots between the Crown of Thorns, the sibyl, and Isaiah. Any thoughts?
