Course content

If you are a musicologist, singer, organist or liturgist with a keen interest in English Church music, this pathway of our MA Music could be for you.​

You'll explore in detail the music created and shared in English churches, from the late Medieval period to the present day.

Through weekly seminars, you'll gain a comprehensive overview of English church music. You'll be able to specialise in topics that interest you, such as defined historical or liturgical topics, manuscript studies or editing projects. You'll be part of a small group, meaning we're able to tailor what we teach to the specific interests of you and your classmates.

We encourage you to get involved in the lively community of our department, from participating in department ensembles to attending our weekly research seminars.
