Luther the Rock Opera: The Soundtrack

by Lost & Found

Get a feel of the fun and flavor of the music from Luther the Rock Opera.

The most popular Lutheran musicians since Bach and Beethoven are writing the lyrics and music, along with top Twin Cities (MN) arrangers and a team of high schoolers from the High School of Recording Arts. 

Lost and Found, who put in 5,000,000 miles over the last 25 years singing in Lutheran circles, are pounding the graphic novel into verse in their unique “Speedwood” musical style with humor, energy and emotion.  Songs in the Rock Opera range from classic Rock and Roll, to ballads, to Broadway, to Rap.
