Martin Luther: clodhoppers and music

"A person who gives this some thought and yet does not regard music as a marvelous creation of God, must be a clodhopper indeed and does not deserve to be called a human being; he should be permitted to hear nothing but the braying of asses and the grunting of hogs."
- Martin Luther, Foreword to Georg Rhau's Collection, "Symphoniae iucundae"
