By Chiara Bertoglio

years in the past a monk nailed his theses to a church gate in Wittenberg. The sound of Luther’s legendary hammer, notwithstanding, used to be not at all the single aural manifestation of the non secular Reformations.
This booklet describes the start of Lutheran Chorales and Calvinist Psalmody; of ways track was once practised by means of Catholic nuns, Lutheran schoolchildren, fighting 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’ old 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 latest, conflicting identities and the one surviving hint of a misplaced team spirit of faith.
