Chapter Summary

This essay focuses on the Lutheran appropriation of the Italian madrigal and canzonetta as demonstrated in Martin Rinckart's anthology Triumphi de Dorothea and Petrus Neander's two volumes of Canzonetten Horatii Vecchi. Luther promoted the liturgical use of psalms in his psalm commentaries, in which he praised the Book of Psalms. In choosing texts, Neander was drawn to traditional settings that emphasized music's role in worship and praise, along with texts that spoke to the Lutheran community more specifically. For the first volume, Neander presented texts from throughout the Book of Psalms, with no respect to their ordering. In the second volume, he followed their appearance in the Book of Psalms, capping off the series with the final 150th psalm.

Keywords: Book of Psalms; Canzonetten Horatii Vecchi; Lutheran community; Martin Rinckart; Petrus Neander
