By Jon Michael Spencer
This book establishes theomusicology as a valid research approach to studying world religious, mythological, and ethical beliefs via music. Spencer divides his work into two parts. Part one, The Domain of Theomusicology, functions as a methodological exposition to Part Two. It defines the meaning of and suggested method for theomusicology and delineates the theomusicologist's best and broadest possible perspective on the world. Part Two, The Discourses of Theomusicology, illustrates how theomusicology combines dialogue with different disciplines as well as a gamut of historical epochs and movements.
