Music is central to the life of Trinity Lutheran Church, taking to heart Martin Luther's view, "In summa, next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world. It controls our thoughts, minds, hearts, and spirits... Our dear fathers and prophets did not desire without reason that music is always used in the churches. Hence, we have so many songs and psalms. This precious gift has been given to man alone that he might thereby remind himself that God has created man for the express purpose of praising and extolling God."
A new undertaking for Trinity is to provide original music for the Christian church that may be performed free of charge and without limitation. The first commissioned music is now available with more to follow. Click to read the license conditions.
