Worship Wars in Early Lutheranism Choir, Congregation and Three Centuries of Conflict

Lutheran agendas and church orders—documents containing regulations concerning church life, doctrine, and the liturgy—present a complex tapestry of liturgical life among early Lutherans. It included the Daily Office, mass, and catechism instruction, all interwoven into the fabric of the church year. Holy days were frequent, and always observed with services. Services in cities tended to be more elaborate than those in villages and rural areas, and were not infrequently held at least partly in Latin. Either a boys' choir, directed by the cantor, or a parish clerk led the music in church. Services were long, and usually only the main mass was well attended, and even then people’s demeanor was sometimes questionable.
