that he gave at a small Episcopal church in Mississippi on the topic of the sacredness of the blues. In microcosm, Spencer's sermon is his entire argument, and in the form of a sermon, it contains all of the power that his scholarly exposition lacks. In fact, the reflexive and subjective stance demanded by Spencer's theomusicology works best not as a scholarly endeavor but as a form of performance. The blues song proclaims itself in its performance, as does the spiritual or the classical piece. The circularity inherent in performances, wherein the singer and the work define themselves by "being," is a beneficial circularity. Spencer's sermon, like the music that he talks about, is a performance that needs no further elucidation. It is the theomusicology that Spencer seeks, and it serves him better than any form of scholarship.
