Music plays such an important part in everyone’s life but how much do we know about the history of music? How did music shape our civilization and how was music itself shaped by the Catholic Church? Susan Treacy, an experienced professor of music, is an excellent guide to the history of music. Every Catholic should own at least one book on music. This is it.
Susan Treacy is Professor of Music Emerita at Ave Maria University. She holds the Ph.D. in Historical Musicology from University of North Texas and B.Mus. and M.Mus. degrees from Oberlin Conservatory and the Manhattan School of Music. Besides scholarly articles, she writes a column, “Musica Donum Dei”, for the Saint Austin Review (StAR), and has written A Plain and Easy Introduction to Gregorian chant (Cantica Nova Publications).
