This is the first of our special events marking the dramatic influence of the Reformation, which began 500 years ago on October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany, thereby starting the Protestant Reformation. It had a profound effect on the music of the Christian Church.
