Dr. Martin Dicke, former LCMS missionary in Papua New Guinea and board member for David’s Harp, joins Andy and Sarah during Bach Week to talk about Bach’s celebration of the 200th Anniversary of the Lutheran Chorale in 1724 with the Chorale Cantata Cycle, what is unique about the Lutheran chorale, how Luther’s influence on church music was carried on by Bach, how the Chorale Cantata Cycle has persisted the test of time, and the resources David’s Harp is producing in celebration of Reformation-era Lutheran music.
