L'évolution de la pensée missionnaire en Afrique centrale au XXe siècle, au travers de la musique liturgique. Cas des deux Congo

Abstract : The twentieth century was a turning point for the evangelization of the peoples in the two Congo. Missionaries stop to reject every element of African cultures and try to understand the languages and customs of these countries. Western liturgical music gradually includes elements from traditional Congolese music, primarily to improve the priest conversion strategy. Composers, belonging to local clergy, European musicians or priests, contribute to the Africanization of religious music by the composition of masses mixing Western and African cultures. In the second half of the twentieth century, after Vatican II, the Congolese local clergy renews the genre of the song initiated by the missionaries of the early twentieth century. The traditional Congolese music now enters the liturgy. The next generation, being laity or religious, continues to compose liturgical music based on traditional music, which mixes also the influences of the current "world music".
