ACLM Columbus: Cantor Connection Launches '5-Year Countdown to the Reformation' on June 2
ACLM Columbus: Cantor Connection launches “Five-Year Countdown to the Reformation” on June 2 with a 7 p.m. hymn festival titled “Martin Luther's Deutsche Messe: Then - and Now."
Where? All Saints Lutheran Church, 6770 N. High St., Worthington, OH 43085
ALCM Columbus: Cantor Connection, a local chapter of the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians, presents the first hymn festival in its “Five-Year Countdown to the Reformation” on June 2 at 7 p.m. at All Saints Lutheran Church, 6770 N. High St., Worthington, OH 43085. The series commemorates the spirit of the Reformation, encapsulated by Martin Luther’s nailing of his theses to the Wittenberg door in 1517.
Featuring members of Cantor Connection and a festival choir, it opens with a festive setting of "A Mighty Fortress" and includes portions of Luther's 1526 German Mass alongside modern-day realizations or paraphrases of the same texts. This creatively planned event promises to be a lively introduction into the spirit of the Protestant Reformation and the deep truths lived out by Luther in his life and work.
Since its founding in 2008 Cantor Connection has presented annually a citywide spring hymn festival, a fall workshop and a service of lessons and carols for Epiphany in January.
Event is open to everyone! Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.
