Sacred Music at Notre Dame
The Sacred Music Program at Notre Dame is an ecumenical, interdisciplinary program that aims to lead the international conversation about the arts and the sacred, pursuing the University's mission to promote the highest standards of teaching and research, service and community. Professors of Music, Theology, and other subjects work together in our Master of Sacred Music (MSM) program in Choral Conducting, Organ, and Voice and in our new Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA) program in Choral Conducting and in Organ.
Areas of complementary specialization (with certificates in some cases) include music in contemporary interdisciplinary arts, early music, liturgical arts and ritual studies, and world music. Our students serve as interns throughout the Notre Dame campus, with supervised placements in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, in Campus Ministry, and in local parishes and congregations, both Catholic and Protestant.
Excerpts from statements of James MacMillan, Libby Larson, Daniel Kellogg, and other composers offered at the conference "James MacMillan and the Musical Modes of Mary and the Cross" held at the University of Notre Dame in September 2013, and sponsored by Sacred Music ND.
