“The secret life of Lutheran chorales”
Martin Luther’s chorale melodies are familiar to many people. They are still sung in churches and in concert halls, absorbed into living traditions and the classical canon. These unassuming tunes have a value which our project is going to highlight in this 500th anniversary year of the beginning of the Reformation.
We will explore the origins of Luther’s chorales; Latin plainsongs and polyphony by composers such as Guillaume Dufay. Then we will perform Luther’s own hymns, in versions printed for consumption by amateurs in the home. Finally you will be able to hear Scandinavian folk hymns which significantly develop Luther’s originals, enriching the melodies with beautiful and unexpected chromatics.
We’ll make you see the humble hymn in a different light!
