    This article explores the dynamics of sacrality in contemporary culture through the performance of LUTHER, a work by Dutch composer Boudewijn Tarenskeen. By means of reinterpreting the person and texts of Martin Luther, Tarenskeen created a performance in which different dynamics of the sacred were at play. The analysis regards the performance of this piece during the annual arts festival Musica Sacra Maastricht, a festival that is concerned with exploring the notion of the sacred in religious and secular music.
