Effie Papanikolaou (musicology) is the co-editor of an exciting new publication. Titled Sacred and Secular Intersections in Music of the Long Nineteenth Century: Church, Stage, and Concert Hall (Lexington Books, 2022), the book explores the impact of religious subjects on secular music in the long nineteenth century. The editors, Eftychia Papanikolaou and Markus Rathey (Yale University), have assembled nineteen fascinating essays that range from theological reflections about the spiritual power of music around 1800 to studies of religious themes on the Parisian stage and the singing of hymns in the trenches of the American Civil War. Dr. Papanikolaou is also the contributor of a chapter, titled “Hieratic Iconoclasm: Liszt, Hanslick, and the Graner Festmesse.” 

Those interested may read an abbreviated version of the book’s introduction on the blog of the Society for Christian Scholarship in Music
