Kimberly Hieb

Associate Professor of Music History, West Texas A&M University

Kimberly Hieb (MA) is Associate Professor of Music History at West Texas A&M University in Canyon Texas.  Her recent research projects explore sources of sacred music that complemented the more famous instrumental repertoire composed in Salzburg in the second half of the seventeenth century.

Kimberly had an edition of Andreas Hofer’s Ver sacrum seu flores musici (Salzburg 1677) published by A-R Editions in May of 2021, and she explored Salzburg’s particular Catholic piety through the lens of sacred music in an article recently published in the Journal of Musicology titled “Music for Martyrs: Sacred Music and the Particular Piety of Late Seventeenth-Century Salzburg”. She is currently working on a book project, which is under contract with Routledge Press, examining sources of sacred music as representations of the political and religious platforms of Salzburg’s ruling prince-archbishops between 1650 and 1700.

Kimberly currently lives in Amarillo, Texas with her three kids and husband, who is a pilot.
