A volume from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Liturgical Studies series, The Whole Church Sings forwards an authoritative study and introduction to Lutheran hymnody and early history by renowned musicologist and Reformation scholar, Robin Leaver. In this books, Leaver challenges the view that asserts congregational singing was not established in Lutheran worship until well after the start of the Reformation, presenting new research to confirm the earlier view that congregational singing was both the intention and the practice right from the beginning of the Wittenberg reforms in worship.

Leaver's study focuses on the Wittenberg hymnal of 1526, which until now has received little scholarly attention. This hymnal, Leaver argues, shows how the Lutheran Reformation was to a large degree defined, expressed, promoted, and taken to heart through early Lutheran hymns. Examining what has been forgotten or neglected about the origins of congregational hymnody under Martin Luther's leadership, this study of worship, music, and liturgy is a significant contribution to Reformation scholarship.
