Is It Really So Strange? The Sacred in Popular Music
Rev. Joseph Emery Pensak & Isaac Wardell (Bifrost Arts)

This workshop critically examines the relevance of sacred music within popular culture, and in particular, pop music. Pensak and Wardell briefly survey the history of hymnody and sacred music with a focus on the deep roots of the sacred in popular music today. Part one focuses on the rich lyrical tradition within hymnody. Part two will addresses the place of the sacred within the creative consciousness of our culture.
