Different ways of dealing with death: the relation between music and theology
Western music has always been a way of expressing that what is most important to men and women. In the past, this has been (and for many people still is) religious faith. This paper explores the relation between music and religion as well as the importance of theology for the interpretation of musical works. We will look at two pieces dealing with death, namely Bachís Actus tragicus (BWV 106) and Brahmís Ein deutsches Requiem, as case studies for the ways in which different theologies can be expressed in music.
