About

In 2017, Protestants around the world will celebrate the anniversary of the Reformation. 500 years ago, Martin Luther compiled his famous 95 theses against the selling of indulgences which triggered off the Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church.

The CD box set entitled 'Luther and Music' provides a diverse approach to this topic containing music spanning a period of over 150 years of Reformation history and presenting a multi-coloured musical panorama from the time of Martin Luther and his successors. The 9-CD collection is not limited to any particular national or denominational borders, instead illustrating the entire continent in its struggles with the true faith.
