EDITORS’ NOTES

This superb album commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation puts Martin Luther’s defiant act in musical context, celebrating some of his collaborators. Vox Luminis have made some excellent—and award-winning—albums, and this is one of their finest. Ambitious in scope, and imaginatively programmed, it finds the Belgian group with organist Bart Jacobs in top form. In addition to the obvious names, like Schütz, Praetorius, and Scheidt, we encounter some of the lesser-known composers of Luther’s time. This is not just historically important—it's also musically satisfying.
