Luther – Music - Bach

In 2012 the Australian Bach Society celebrated “Reformation and Music” - A tribute to Martin Luther’s reformation that started in 1517. On Music Luther wrote: “In summa, next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world. It controls our thoughts, minds, heart, and spirits…” Luther himself wrote text and music of many popular hymns to enhance the reading of the gospel and contributed extensively to the disputations at his time. For J.S. Bach, some 200 years later, theological and musical scholarship were two sides of the same coin: the search for divine revelation, or the quest for God. Many works of J.S. Bach symbolize a Trinitarian music combining word, sound and picture - truly timeless!
