“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” – Martin Luther

On October 31, 1517, a monk named Martin Luther set in motion a spiritual movement that transformed  sacred music. With the Twin Cities’ award-winning chorus, The Rose Ensemble, Piffaro will guide listeners through the first formative century of the Reformation. In true Lutheran tradition, the audience will be invited to participate.

Luther was a great lover of “the unshackled art of music;” he himself penned hymns like Ein feste Burg (A Mighty Fortress), “the battle cry of the Reformation.” He believed that through music we could discover the “great and perfect wisdom of God.”

After calling the audience to attention with hammer blows, Piffaro and The Rose Ensemble will present music from the first generation of Lutheran composers, performed as the people would have heard it in that momentous era, on the instruments and in the style of the 16th century.

Music: Classical / Opera Music: Choral Music Northern Delaware
