To Our Readers


Our spring issue of The Yale ISM Review is devoted to the Passion of Jesus Christ. In it we have collected examples of how this central mystery of the Christian faith has inspired and continues to inspire music, art, literature, homiletics, liturgy, and devotion. You will also find in these pages contributions that wrestle with ethical and theological questions surrounding the Passion. Our hope is that what we have been able to offer here will inform, stimulate, and enrich your own response to the sacred story and the works that depict it.

The Yale ISM Review is 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. Thank you for visiting us today. If you like what you see, subscribe! Subscription is absolutely free and open to all.
