Item Description...
Overview
Martin Luther's relationship to music has been downplayed in both the scholarly and lay communities, yet music played a vital role in Luther's life and he in turn had a deep and lasting effect on Christian hymnody. The latest in the Lutheran Quarterly Books series, Luther's Liturgical Music extensively explores these connections. Beginning with a consideration of previous studies of Luther and music, Leaver notes their strengths and weaknesses and sheds light on a number of common misconceptions. She then continues with an extremely thorough study of the Reformer's experience of music throughout his life, from the popular to the sacred, and his theological understanding of music. In the following sections Leaver details music written by Luther, his reforms of liturgical music, and the impact of his theology of music on the liturgy and life of the Lutheran church over two centuries. Luther's Liturgical Music is the most extensive study on Luther and music to be published to date. While it is a formidable contribution to Reformation studies, worship leaders, musicians, and others will find it an invaluable and very readable resource as well.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Insight for the Role of Music in Worship  Mar 1, 2009
As a Lutheran church musician, I found this book fascinating and informative. Many of us have favorite hymns, and love singing in worship, but I think we may have forgotten that for Luther music was a means to teach and reinforce Christians' understanding of Scripture.

I don't think that one need be Lutheran to appreciate this book, however some references will be unfamiliar to those who have not studied music.
 
Essential Reading  Nov 5, 2007
This is an absolutely excellent study of Luther's philosophy and theology of music and its use to proclaim the Gospel of Christ. It is extremely well researched, engagingly presented, and filled with wonderful insights. The title might be a bit misleading since this is not merely a study of Luther's use of liturgical music, but rather a comprehensive overview of the role of music in Martin Luther's theology and pastoral practice. The book is packed with information. This book will rightly take its place as one of the most definitive treatments of this subject, more or less neglected in much of Luther studies in English. Put this book together with the Lutheran Confessions and you have a very well rounded vision for church life and confession in the Lutheran Reformation tradition.
