This e-book describes the delivery of Lutheran Chorales and Calvinist Psalmody; of ways tune was once practised by way of Catholic nuns, Lutheran schoolchildren, struggling with Huguenots, missionaries and martyrs, cardinals at Trent and heretics in hiding, at a time whilst Palestrina, Lasso and Tallis have been composing their masterpieces, and forbidden songs have been hid, smuggled and sung in taverns and princely courts alike.
Music expressed religion within the Evangelicals’ rising worships and within the Catholics’ historic rites; via it new ideals have been unfold and heresy countered; analysed by way of humanist theorists, it comforted and consoled miners, housewives and persecuted preachers; it used to be either the emblem of recent, conflicting identities and the single surviving hint of a misplaced cohesion of faith.
The song of the Reformations, hence, was once song reformed, track reforming and the reform of track: this e-book exhibits what the Reformations gave the impression of, and the way tune turned one of many protagonists within the non secular conflicts of the 16th century.
