Martin Jean, director of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, has announced the promotion of Markus Rathey to Professor in the Practice of Music History. The appointment was effective July 1.
“When one of our colleagues and teachers succeeds, we all succeed. This is a great day for Prof. Rathey, whose scholarship, teaching, and service to Yale have been exemplary in every way,” said Jean. “Reviews of his new books on the Christmas Oratorio and on Bach’s major vocal works have been laudatory, both hailed as major contributions to the field of Bach scholarship. His teaching is consistently well received by students in multiple departments of the University, and he has been an unswerving and creative colleague in the Institute, dedicated whole-heartedly to our interdisciplinary mission.
“I hope you will join me in celebrating Prof. Rathey’s well-earned accomplishment.”
