Religiosity and secularization


This issue of the Revista Brasileira de Música (Brazilian Journal of Music), under the theme “Religiosity and secularization”, deals with the production and reception of musical genres in liturgical and secular contexts, the ongoing redefinition of the social function of music, from the traditions of the Iberian and Luso-Brazilian colonial period to their redirection to European cosmopolitan models, especially in the period of transition from monarchy to republic in Brazil. It requires attention to the reciprocal relationship between religious music committed to secular affections and secular music committed to religious affections.


Portuguese-Brazilian music, Brazilian colonial period, sacred music, secular music, 17th century, 18th century, 19th century
