Title: The sacred lute: intabulated chorales from Luther's age to the beginnings of pietism
Author: Beckman, Gary D., 1961-
Abstract: Chorale and psalm intabulations were an integral part of the German repertory for lute , both in print and in manuscript , from the beginnings of the Reformation through the seventeenth century . While these works are regularly present , if in modest proportion , in extant sources through the period , the study of these intabulations remains a lacuna in the scholarly literature . The repertory , however , is an important topic for study as it reflects key aspects of Early Modern life for devout Lutheran households : debates over orthodox and Pietist theology , private devotion and the use of domestic space , conservatism versus progressive musical approaches , and the intersection between instrumental practices and traditions of Protestant sacred song . In an effort to address this lacuna , this study catalogs chorale and psalm intabulations for lute in both print and manuscript from the early sixteenth century to the emergence of Pietism . Most importantly , it attempts to provide a context for the performance of this repertory , arguing for an assessment of lute chorales and psalms as a crucial part of domestic devotional practice .
