Summary/Abstract: The idea of the “suitable” church music goes back to the time of St. Augustin’s tradition. According to this tradition the church music is rationalized as a perception of unity, goodness, and beauty. The Council of Trent decree of 1562 calls for the necessity and ability of the church music to educate and admonish the listeners. The turning point in the history of the idea comes forward when the musical aesthetics as modern science adopts the postulate for independent sensational sound reality and its valuation criteria become that of the musical expressive methods. Precisely this analysis, however, is of very limited potential with regard to the church music. Thus the idea of the Logos nature of the music appears in the foreground carefully protected by the musical theology to this day.
