The Crucifixion in Music studies the musical representation of words and the concepts and contexts to which words refer, examining the way the treatment of a literary text, namely the Crucifixus, coalesces into a recognizable musical tradition that individual composers follow, develop, modify, or ignore.

A fascinating account of Bach's musical interpretation of the crucifixion...This unique study of musical settings of the Crucifixus is believed to be the first of its kind in the world... Deeside Piper ...offers many fresh insights...opens our horizon to see a wider range of issues in perspective... Bach Bibliography Cameron (music, U. of Aberdeen, Scotland) analyzes how the text of the Crucifixus from the Catholic Mass was set to music during the period of 1680 to 1800 and considers the related musical tradition. She considers the text setting in JS Bach's B Minor Mass and those by German and Italian composers before and after him, such as Caldara, Bertoni, Zelenka, Vivaldi, Lotti, Mozart, and Haydn. She takes into account the ideas of theorists past and present, analytical techniques of rhetoric and semiotic theory and whether they are suitable for this type of music, and influences and transmissions of settings.
