Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672)
was the greatest composer to emerge in German-speaking lands
before J.S. Bach.
While his style is utterly distinctive, his
music fascinatingly combines classical Palestrinian counterpoint
with the latest Italian innovations in texture and harmony,
all overlaid with a vividly expressive Lutheran
text. The effect is dramatic, emotional and thoroughly human.
While much of his music demands instruments and soloists,
for this workshop day with David Allinson we will focus
the full-textured choral music of the Geistlich
published in 1648.
The programme, to commemorate the
350th anniversary of Schütz’s death, is crowned by the
astonishing late setting
of the Magnificat,
Meine Seele erhebt den Herren
