    Fourth Century church music with an organ? I believe the first organ ever installed in a church was by Charlemagne in the late eighth century.

    Yeah, that setting of “O Sacred Head” is not from the 11th Century. The original text is, but that was Bach’s setting from the 18th Century. Whoever put that Lutheran Church music commercial together needs to address the alarming number of mistakes contained within.

    Organs have been a central part of Lutheran hymnody since at least AD 250.

    @Nick Stuart

    Where are you getting your information? Because everything I’ve read and studied (my bachelor’s is in music) states that organ music did not begin to permeate churches until the later half of the first millennium AD. Church music was acapella (meaning “as in the chapel”) for hundreds of years. Organ music didn’t even become mainstream until monody was abandoned for polyphony much, much later than the 4th Century.

    Did it cover Lutheran churches in the first millennium? I think that’s the disconnect here.

    So a bit after Jesus told Philip Melanchthon that Forensic Justification was what he was really talking about? Interesting.

    Thank goodness this podcast is back! I’ll listen to it tomorrow, and I hope there’s a “Fight of the Week” . . .

    Just spoofing. Everyone knows there weren’t any Lutherans until at least AD 600

    Well, no Fight of the Week. Too bad. I had a podcast parody I wrote a while back, but then The Hemingways podcasts disappeared.

    Still, it was great to hear the two of them again!
