The Festival Choral Eucharist for Reformation uses a model of the German mass that was adapted by Martin Luther in 1526. Instead of simply having a choral structure, the service involves both choral and preaching components. Luther's goal was to highlight preaching, as well as the sacrament. The service uses various hymns, some of which were written by Luther.
Pre-service music by the Wittenberg Choir, the Wittenberg Handbell Choir and the Wittenberg Brass Choir begins at 7 p.m. The service begins at 7:30 p.m.
The Witt Series is a selection of cultural activities annually presented by Wittenberg University. All Series events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jeannine Fox, Series coordinator, at (937) 327-7470 or via e-mail.
