The Nightingale of WittenbergStreaming Video - 2006
Congregational music during worship owes its origin to Martin Luther, who used it to proclaim his bedrock message of the Protestant Reformation: God's grace as the sole ingredient for salvation. This elegant program explains how Luther changed the mode of public worship by integrating music into the divine service so that all Christians-not just the clergy-could express and celebrate their belief. It also highlights Luther's biography, from his time as a professor of Theology in 1512 at Wittenberg University to his "love for the truth and.desire to elucidate it" expressed in his 95 Theses five years later. Excommunicated and under the ban of the Emperor, Luther's love of music in Protestant worship never waned.
