Join us for special lunchtime lecture by Dr. J. Evan Kreider, UBC Professor Emeritus of Music.

In honour of the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, Dr. Kreider will be considering Martin Luther’s hymn A Mighty Fortress is Our God, and its significance to the Protestant Reformation.

Evan Krieder began teaching at the UBC School of Music in 1975. His research encompassed studies of Renaissance chant, early music notation, liturgical music, and the editing of Renaissance and Baroque keyboard music. Other projects included a critical edition of the secular works of Pierre de la Rue (d. 1518) and the investigation of politics and theology in music attributed to Martin Luther.
