Michael Praetorius (1571–1621) was a German Lutheran musician whose impact on the Lutheran chorale cannot be overstated. His chorale settings of hymns endure to this day. This three-volume collection, edited by William Braun, includes the SAB chorale settings of Michael Praetorius, and may be used as a complete selection by the choir, as an anthem, or in alteration with the congregation for the Hymn of the Day. Volume 1 includes chorales from Advent through Easter. Volume 2 includes chorales from Ascension through the End Times. Volume 3 includes chorales for Reformation and general use throughout the Church Year.
