The Yale ISM Review

Music, Religion and the Arts, Yale Divinity School, Yale School of Music

I wanted to make you aware of a project we’ve been working hard on over here at the ISM.  Feel free to check it out–it’s a great resource for congregations, ministers, and musicians alike! 

We are pleased to present a new venture: The Yale ISM Review. Published by Yale Institute of Sacred Music, it is a biannual, open-access online publication serving practitioners in the fields of sacred music, worship, and the related arts. You are invited to join us for stimulating discussions, enriched by contributions from Yale faculty and others who are leaders in their fields.

Our inaugural issue is organized around the theme of song — that deeply human expression so important to worship, yet also fragile and needing care if it is to flourish. The theme of song is reflected here through music, poetry, art, and prayer; in these pages you will discover connections between song and human health, philosophy, architecture, and more.  -Rita Ferrone, editor
