Concert Audience Survey
Thank you for filling out this Concert Audience Survey, which aims to gather data regarding emotional, psychological and spiritual responses to music performed in a variety of concert settings in order to ascertain the relative proportion of religious, or theistic, responses to music in comparison to emotional/aesthetic, non-theistic, responses, and the interaction/relationship between the two.
Previous studies include 'Sacred Music in Secular Society' (Ashgate, 2014)
