Martin Luther, sacred composer

I haven’t seen this yet – am downloading it as I type this – but my pastor was raving about it just now: Simon Russell Beale’s BBC Four documentary, Bach and the Lutheran legacy, in which Beale looks at the impact Martin Luther made on the development of western sacred music.

This is currently available on BBC iPlayer until Friday 18 April, and looks well worth watching.

Why are you still here?

(Those wishing to download this rather than watching the streaming version, but who have not paid the Windows tax in order to do so, may wish to check out this handy Ruby script. Those outside the UK, or without a TV licence: now don’t even think of trying to watch this. Oh no. You thieves. ;-))

    Was he raving enough to suggest that to the voters that the congregation might do well to invest in an instrument? πŸ˜‰

    We have an instrument, and it is perfectly adequate for playing “Shine, Jesus, Shine”, thanksallthesame. πŸ™‚
