October 21-23, 2017

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, home to one of the largest relic collections in the world. So began his campaign to replace the Roman Church with the personal piety of the individual Christian. In seeking to enable such personal piety, Luther promoted the singing of what we know as chorales—simple tunes with devotional texts in the vernacular.

Charlotte Bach Akademie celebrates this historical event with its inaugural concerts. The performances feature the popular cantatas Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott, BWV 80, Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV 140,  as well as the motet, Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, BWV 230.
