Hymns of the Reformation

Hymns of the Reformation - A Festival of Sacred Music 

(Moved from Sunday September 10 due to Hurricane Irma, tentatively scheduled for:)

October 8 at 6:00pm (Choir rehearsal at 4:45pm)

This ecumenical musical commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation will bring people of all denominations together to hear and sing some of the most wonderful music created in the first centuries of the Reformation, with music by Martin Luther and his colleagues, and from other reformed traditions. A remarkable gathering of singers from across South Florida will lead the singing of favorite music of this period.

Luther wrote 36 hymns and one motet; his followers would go on to write hundreds of hymns—perhaps most notably Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676) who wrote 139 German hymn texts and 15 in Latin. Today there are over 10,000 hymns that have been collected on NetHymnal. 

This event will begin with Luther’s A Mighty Fortress is Our God—both in Luther’s original rhythmic version and then in the common form best known today.  Other favorite hymns will include All People that on Earth Do Dwell and Now Thank We All Our God.

This commemoration will be unusual in bringing South Florida choruses together; the magnificent organ and wonderful acoustics of Trinity Cathedral (464 NE 16th Street, Miami, Florida 33132) will help make for a most memorable event.
