Going up to Oxford

Posted in: General by Andy Edwards on August 31, 2011

When traveling to either Oxford or Cambridge, it is customary to use elevatory language: one goes “up” to those towns, no matter whence (ahem, “from wherever”) one comes.

So today I am “going up” to Oxford to deliver a paper comparing the musicological conservatisms of Charles Wesley and Joseph Ratzinger. Much more exciting than my paper, however, is the conference of which it is a small part: Christian Congregational Music: Local & Global Perspectives. Ethnomusicologists and theologians, historians & liturgists are gathering to discuss the interrelations of theology and music, the interweavings of religious and cultural identities, practices of listening and hearing, etc. I’ve seen a draft schedule and it promises to be an exciting, innovative, and interdisciplinary event.

If you happen to be attending the conference, please drop by the Liturgical Press table and say hello.

But for those who aren’t attending (sorry, it was booked months ago!), I will be posting my reflections upon the event as they relate to R&T interests. Stay tuned.
