Lobe den Herren

This recording concludes with Halliday's own composition, Fantasy on Lutheran Hymns followed by his transciption of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.

"I, Doctor Martin Luther, wish all lovers of the unshackled art of music, grace and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ! I truly desire that all Christians would love and regard as worthy the lovely gift of music, which is a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given to mankind by God."
