Listen to the birds: Luther on music

Mark P. Bangert


This article aims to reflect on the theological understanding of Luther about the music. Examines the relationship between music and birdsong, reflecting on the passion of Luther for this song, the inspiration for musical compositions of various types, natural theology, and so on. From this broad reflection on music and birds, the article discusses aspects of Trinitarian and Creation´s Theology based on Luther as a subsidy for a theology of gospel music and the consequences of this theology for music making in the church today.
