Music for Lutheran worship has roots that reach back to the 16th century Reformation and to many centuries before. This deep tradition has been formed by music from hundreds of cultures, styles, composers, poets, and theologians. Today’s composers continue to enrich and expand the Lutheran tradition of sacred music and reflect the styles of six continents, using musical language that is both old and new. In this registry you will find a wide variety of works which you can purchase electronically or in printed version directly from the composer. Moreover, you can look closely at composers’ sacred compositions with an eye and ear to commissioning new works for the church.
