Zinzendorf, a German Lutheran Pietist, founded the Renewed Moravian Church in 1772.

"He wrote some 2,000 hymns ... Gifted with a fine voice, he led song services and initiated the famed "Singstunde," a service built around stanzas spontaneously but skilfully chosen to form a unified theme." John R. Weinlich in The New Grove v. 20, p. 695.
