Music and ritual are close conceptual cousins. Both draw a recourse to formal, highly patterned, repetitive symbolic languages. The five articles in this volume illustrate this basic proposition on the use and meaning of music in ritual, particularly the multisensorial ones that engage participants’ bodies in events that involve intense degrees of complexity and heightened aesthetics.
