For the German Reformer Martin Luther music was a ‘beautiful and priceless gift of God’. Among its ‘many and great uses’ was its capacity ‘to move human hearts through words and song and sound’. Like no other art form, music was able to ‘rule over the feelings of the human heart’. Its emotional impact was such that it was able to ‘make the sad joyful, the joyful sad, the timid brave and the proud humble’.

A public lecture delivered at the 24X24 Conference at St Hilary's Kew.
