Glinka laid the foundation of the modern Russian School of Music and was the

(a) A Mighty Fortress Is Our God Martin Luther
Arranged by Clifford Lillya
To Martin Luther goes the credit for having written both the words and the melody
of "A Mighty Fortress." He is said to have composed his melodies by playing them on a
flute while a fellow musician wrote them down. The harmonization used here is based
on that of J. S. Bach. The transcriber, Clifford P. Lillya, is now a member of the
faculty at the University of Michigan, and is widely known as an arranger.
