This week on ACDA Radio and ChoralNet, Going Beyond Words with Host Stan Schmidt helps you lean into the winds of Reformation history with four new releases from the Carus Record Company of Germany. You will hear several important melodies created by Martin Luther and how during subsequent centuries, composers such at J.S.Bach, Johann Fischer, Heinrich Schütz, Gunnar Eriksson of Sweden and Volker Jaekel (b.1965) plus Michael Praetorius, just to name a few, created new harmonious sounds for Maestro Luther’s hymns.There is also a brief comparison of the connection between two works by J.S. Bach, Reformation Cantata BWV 79 and one of the Lutheran Masses, Missa Brevis in G BWV 236. It was Martin Luther who said ”God preaches the Gospel through Music and Music brings the text to life.” As always be sure to visit www.goingbeyondwords.com and view these four new CD’s that focus on works by Luther and the Reformation.
