Vom gottesdienstlichen Singen: Gedanken zum Gesang in der by Veronika Gosch

By Veronika Gosch

used to be im Deutschen üblicherweise mit ,Kirchenmusik’ übersetzt wird, heißt im Lateinischen ,Musica sacra’ . In diesem Begriff ist bereits das Hauptmerkmal würdiger gottesdienstlicher Musik enthalten, nämlich die Sakralität. Da die Liturgie eine wahrhaft heilige Handlung ist, soll auch die in ihr erklingende Musik heilig sein. Deshalb hat die Kirche seit ihren Anfängen stets um die Wahrung der Heiligkeit ihrer Musik gerungen. Letztlich ging es immer um das rechte Glaubensverständnis der liturgischen Mysterien, ihres Inhalts und ihres Anspruchs. Die radikalen Umwälzungen nach dem II. Vatikanum, die vielfach an dem vorbeigingen, was once die Konzilsväter in Wirklichkeit beabsichtigt hatten, gehen mit einem allgemein fortschreitenden Verlust des Empfindens für das Sakrale einher, used to be natürlich auch für die Sakrale Musik nicht ohne Folgen bleiben konnte. Das Schwinden des Bewusstseins, welche Bedeutung die Musik für den Gottesdienst hat und welche paintings von Musik hierfür angemessen ist bzw. welche nicht, ist ein nicht geringer Grund zur Sorge. Joseph Ratzinger (unser emeritierter Papst Benedikt XVI.), einer der bedeutendsten Theologen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts, ist ein großer Kenner und Liebhaber der Musik, weswegen er das Thema in zahlreichen Büchern, Briefen, Predigten, Ansprachen and so forth. aufgegriffen hat. Der Betrachtung seiner tiefsinnigen und sublimen Gedanken über die Musica Sacra ist das vorliegende Buch gewidmet.
