REA Special Issue on Sacred Music

Issue 10 of the peer-reviewed online journal REA: Religion, Education, and the Arts is edited by Dr Róisín Blunnie (DCU) and Dr Orla Flanagan (TCD). The issue is called 'Sacred Music: Perspectives on Performance', and it brings together perspectives on sacred music from diverse Irish and international scholars, several of whom are active not only as writers, but also as conductors, composers, organists, and singers, and whose areas of focus traverse centuries and sub-disciplines of musicology and performance.
