In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

Please note:
All beauty is subjective. There is no such thing as a true "Top Ten" list. Each piece holds its own beauty and is neither better nor worse than others. Also, unless it has singing, it is not technically a song. The title of this video is merely meant to help an average person find it, so that beautiful music, and the incredible depth of beauty that comes with it, will be discovered and felt by more people. Also, there is a second video with more songs and composers which I couldn't fit into this video (see above link).
