Music and More


This course will explore the life of Francis through an integrated approach that melds classical music with Viterbo University's core values (hospitality, integrity, contemplation, stewardship, and service). Two weeks of introduction to Franciscan values and traditions will set the stage for an exploration of music that has been organized into five categories: I. Creation and the Good Earth; II. Self-Giving Love and Perfect Joy; III. Peace, Justice and What It Means to Hug a Leaper; IV. A Caveman's Guide to Prayer and Contemplation; and V. God with Us: The Mystery of the Incarnation. While pertinent musical selections will serve as study material, the Viterbo core values will guide assignments and project throughout the semester. Students may not earn credit for more than one VUSM course at the 100 level. FVT, AE
