Bach’s “Ein feste Burg” and Music of Early Lutheran Masters

500 years ago, Martin Luther initiated an ongoing process of reformation, and the music of the Church evolved in significant ways. Luther's colleague, Johann Walther (1496-1570), was among the first Lutheran composers following the Reformation. Subsequent Lutheran composers include Heinrich Schutz (1585-1682) and Michael Praetorius (1571-1621). Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is perhaps the most prominent Lutheran composer of all time. Music from these masters will be included in this concert, with a focus on Bach's "Cantata 80, Ein feste Burg is unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is Our God)," based on Luther's most widely-known hymn.
