Bret A. Heim has crafted new settings based on five hymns of Martin Luther (1483-1546). These tunes include GOTT DER VATER, WOHN UNS BEI; JESUS CHRISTUS, UNSER HEILAND; a cantilena and toccata on NUN BITTEN WIR; NUN FREUT EUCH; and a delightful triptych on NUN KOMM, DER HEIDEN HEILAND. Each hymn comes from a rich history in Christianity where Luther either updated and translated pre-Reformation hymns, or created the hymn texts himself. These attractive settings will be a wonderful addition to the organist’s library for Reformation or any portion of the Church Year.
