In 1517, indignant at the mercenary abuses of the Church and convinced that a public debate was needed to restore faith in the founding texts of the Bible, Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg Castle. This marked the beginning of the Reformation, which was to spread all over Europe. Five hundred years later, Graham Ross and the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge give insight into the emotional and dramatic strength of it's theological and cultural legacy in a program featuring Bach's two great Reformation cantatas and other chorale-based works from the German and English traditions down to the 20th century.
