MUSI 294-01  Passion Music: Renderings of Jesus's Final Hours
MWF 10:50 am-11:50 am MUSIC 228 Michael McGaghie
This course will explore music of the Passion tradition (the story of Jesus' arrest, trial, and death). This genre includes what many have deemed the most ambitious, innovative, and seminal vocal works of the past five hundred years. We will begin the semester by looking at the Passion form’s roots in medieval plainchant and its growth into the grand archetypal settings of Johann Sebastian Bach. Our study then will shift to consider several modern expansions upon this musical legacy. We will discuss the narrative/dramatic sense of all these works, their evolving roles in liturgical and/or concert performance, the inclusion of non-canonical (and non-Christological) texts, the myriad social and political implications of these works, and of course, the novelties of their musical language. This course will help students learn to write critically about music. Previous coursework in music theory is not required, but a familiarity with basic musical notation is necessary and will be assumed.

MUSI 294-02  Music in the United States, 1700s to Present
TR 03:00 pm-04:30 pm MUSIC 228 Elissa Harbert
*Cross-listed with AMST 294-05* Music has always been a central player in identity construction for the diverse cultures of the United States. Music acts as a force that binds social groups together, but it also highlights and enforces perceived differences. This class explores a wide variety of musics in their social contexts from the 1770s to the present, asking the question, Is there an American music? We will explore the ways musical innovation in the United States has responded to cultural needs, social shifts, and European musical standards in selected case studies from the 1770s to the present. Topics include how Americans self-consciously created their musical culture in the years surrounding the Revolution; the rise and fall of blackface minstrelsy; how music influenced and was influenced by the Civil War; how African American music gradually became accepted as central to American music; the use and abuse of Native American music as a marker of nationalism; how twentieth-century art music composers (including Charles Ives, William Grant Still, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, and John Adams) strove to define and practice an American compositional style; the racial, gendered, and generational factors at play in the birth and rise of rock and roll; the many musics of the Civil Rights struggle; and how Americans have fashioned themselves musically since the cultural explosion of Web 2.0.
