I have always loved music; whoso has skill in this art is of a good temperament, fitted for all things. We must teach music in schools, a schoolmaster ought to have skills in music, or I would not regard him; neither should we ordain young men as preachers unless they have been well exercised in music.  Martin Luther (1483-1546) Quoted by David Amos at https://sdjewishworld.wordpress.com/2010/04/15/quotable-quotes/

Martin Luther is most remembered as a founder of the Protestant Reformation. His translation of the Bible into vernacular German understood by ordinary folk set a standard for Bible translation that extends to this day. He was a prolific composer of hymns including “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott” (“A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”).
