Voices of Reform

This resource allows users to listen to a range of compositions reflecting the diverse vocal manifestations of early modern music. In addition to Luther’s congregational melody “Ein feste burg” and his creedal hymn “Wir gleuben all an einen Gott”, the program contains metrical psalms (a signature musical style flowing from Calvinist theology) and two five-voice pieces from William Byrd’s Psalmes, sonets, & songs of sadnes and pietie of 1588.
