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

Luther’s changes to the received liturgies—the mass, Liturgy of the Hours, and sermon—were quite conservative. Congregational singing was known before the Reformation, and Luther was not so much an innovator as a popularizer of it. There is evidence that the late 16th-century Catholic mass in Germany was similar in outward appearance to the Lutheran mass.
