Recommended AFLTS textbook for Worship, Hymns, and Music course taught by Mr. Andrew Hanson, Director of Music.
A leading voice on Luther and Music, Carl Schalk’s 56-page booklet reads much like a research paper. Well-structured, one can read the first sentence of each paragraph and get a great understanding of what is to come. Schalk chronicles music in Luther’s early life, asserts how Luther was a leading voice of his time in understanding music as practical and not speculative, and categorizes Luther’s contributions, understandings, and value of music into five “Paradigms of Praise.”
