God likes boy-bands and line-dancing

And here’s a quote from Luther to prove it:

“When natural music is sharpened and polished by art, then one begins to see with amazement the great and perfect wisdom of God in his wonderful work of music, where on voice takes a simple part and around it sing three, four, or five other voices, leaping, springing round about, marvellously gracing the simple part, like a square dance in heaven with friendly bows, embracing, and hearty swinging of partners.”   (quoted in Blume, F. Protestant Church Music. London, 1975, p.10)
