Resisting tendencies to disembody the ascended Christ and to disembody religious music—in order to see both as “heavenly,” “spiritual,” or “angelic”—this lecture will insist on the essentially embodied nature of Christian music, starting from the singing of the risen and ascended Jesus as the template and medium for liturgical music-making.
