All the best tunes
On Reformation Day itself, in the perfect setting of Birmingham’s Baroque cathedral, come and join the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire to sing some of the greatest tunes inspired by Martin Luther’s revolutionary Reformation, which began in 1517. Why should the devil have them?
The programme also includes music by Schütz, Buxtehude, Kuhnau and the great Johann Sebastian Bach, performed by the Conservatoire Chamber Choir, Early Wind, Brass and Strings, and several members of the Organ Department.
