In 1517 when Martin Luther posted 95 thesis on All Saints Church, Wittenberg, Germany, he began a debate that has resounded down the centuries.  One that has found its way into literature, painting and music.  The wonderfully named Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble have taken music inspired by Luther and recast it in their own unique instrumental (and organ) style.  The lest known piece in their selection being the Ecclesiastical Festival Overture by Nicolai.  Real Hi-Fi sound engineered by Hudson Fair.
