Nola’s Notes – the Hymnals of Rt. Rev. Johannes Herbst (1735-1812).
and what they tell us about Herbst, about history, and about Moravian worship
Nola explores the connections between German and English hymnals in his private collection and what they tell us about him, about history, and about Moravian worship. Included: the 1778 Gesangbuch by Christian Gregor; 1789 English Hymnal; 1809 English Hymnal; “Jesus Makes My Heart Rejoice”. Rev. Nola Reed Knouse, Ph.D., Director of the Moravian Music Foundation, leads us on a journey through Moravian history and offers us a glimpse at a few of the treasures residing in the archives in Winston-Salem and Bethlehem. Please support the mission of MMF to preserve, share and celebrate Moravian musical culture.
