It’s October — almost Reformation Day — and that means Luther hymns!
In this Hymn Sing celebration of Martin Luther the hymnist, Sarah leads Erin, Bri and Rachel in a wide-ranging discussion of Luther’s hymn text, hymn tunes, and liturgies.
Learn about the long list of hymns Luther wrote or translated (some of which may surprise you), how he incorporated hymnody into the Divine Service, and which hymns appeared in the first-ever Lutheran hymnal, published just five years after the state of the Reformation in 1524. Special attention is paid in this episode to the two “hymns of the day” assigned for Reformation Sunday: Paul Speratus’s “Salvation unto Us Has Come” and Luther’s own most beloved hymn, “A Mighty Fortress.”
