​​"And did the world with devils swarm, all gaping to devour us..." written by Hollis Thoms to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. Jason Thoms sings the role of Luther and Sarah Bleasdale is Katie, his new wife. The opera was performed on November 4 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and November 5 in Baltimore, Maryland with T. Herbert Dimmock, conducting the Bach Concert Series ensemble.

Here are recordings of the opera in two files.  We have also included a pdf of the program, so you may follow the libretto.
