Professor Fassler’s special fields of study are medieval and American sacred music, and the liturgy of the Latin Middle Ages. Her subspecialties are liturgical drama of the Middle Ages and Mariology. Her book Gothic Song: Victorine Sequences and Augustinian Reform in Twelfth-Century Paris has received awards from both the American Musicological Society and the Medieval Academy of America. She has edited a volume on the divine office (Oxford University Press), and has just completed a book on the cult of the Virgin Mary at Chartres (forthcoming from Yale University Press). She is the author of numerous articles on a broad range of topics and is currently preparing a book on the twelfth-century theologian, exegete, and composer Hildegard of Bingen, and a textbook for W.W. Norton. Under the auspices of a grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., Professor Fassler is working with congregations and practitioners to make videos of sacred music in its liturgical contexts.
