In July 2014 Christopher received the award of Doctor in Philosophy from the University of Liverpool for his thesis: ‘The Treasury of Sacred Music: A Hermeneutical Investigation to the Reception of Chapter Six of Sacrosanctum Concilium in England.’

Christopher is currently working towards a new book looking at how liturgical music might more profitably benefit from dialoguing with a wide variety of partners including eschatology, cosmology, doxology, imagination and the three transcendentals: beauty, goodness and truth.  This book seeks to address the weakness in many contemporary theologies of liturgical music which treat liturgical music in a very narrow, over rationalistic and functionalist manner.
