TL;DR: OME can influence music perception in children at the beginning of their school education with both pitch- and rhythm-related aspects of music perception, with statistically significant differences for scale and rhythm scores.
Abstract: Purpose: This study tested the hypothesis that children with otitis media with effusion (OME) attending a primary school are at risk of impairment of their musical skills. OME is characterized as an inflammation with accumulation of secretion in the tympanic cavity, leading to conductive hearing loss. Method: Perception of music in children is assessed using the Montreal Battery of Evaluation of Music Abilities (MBEMA). Listeners are required to judge whether two successive melodies are the same or different on tests of scale, contour, interval and rhythm. They are also queried by a memory test. A total of 92 children (49 girls and 43 boys), aged 6.0–8.0 years (mean 7.3, SD 0.7), attending a music school, were examined using the MBEMA. Twenty-three children were allocated to the OME group, while the remaining 69 to the control group. Age and gender distribution did not differ between children with OME and the controls. All participants had normal bone conduction hearing thresholds. The conductive ...

TL;DR: In this article, the authors point out the composer's measures serving a higher purpose mentioned by Łukaszewski himself, i.e. to bring man closer to Truth through reflection and contemplation.
Abstract: “The Church continues to experience […] the death [of Christ] on the Cross and His Resurrection. They are the substance of the Church’s everyday life.” These words of the Polish Pope resound in the musical work of Pawel Łukaszewski. Via Crucis (2000) and its continuation of sorts—Resurrectio (2012) belong to his significant works taking up the subject matters of Passion and Easter. Both compositions may be classified as part of the oratorio genre tradition. Their verbal text, Latin language as well as musical means (often deeply rooted in the European music of the past) distinctly indicate their affiliation to the circle of Christian culture and a reference to its values. Sometimes the author also introduces references to that which is specifically Polish. The paper attempts to point out the composer’s measures serving a higher purpose mentioned by Łukaszewski himself, i.e. to bring man closer to Truth through reflection and contemplation.
