Redemption Songs: God in Popular Music from the 1960s to the Present Day
- Course Dates: Thu 30 October 2014, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Since the middle of the last century, a youth-led musical culture with roots in black Gospel has taken Western culture by storm, fed by new recording technologies, affluence and mass broadcasting.
While hymns and religious songs retain specific power for some, there are few today who have not been deeply moved by popular music, or have not learnt important parts of their identity from it. This day explores the religious and theological effects of some of the great popular musicians of the past.
