Abstract:

"Now widely regarded as one of the greatest composers in early musical history, Heinrich Schutz cultivated, in the context of his Lutheran faith, all the principal forms of sacred music of his time, serving as Kapellmeister to the electoral court at Dresden from 1615 to his death in 1672. Since, however, his work is so intensely bound up with German biblical language, the full magnitude of his achievement has only gradually been recognized outside his native country. By means of translations and of references to English biblical sources and to wider literary and artistic models, Basil Smallman brings the composer and his work vividly alive for the non-German reader.

His principal works are studied in chronological order, with interspersed biographical chapters covering his varied activities, his years spent in Italy and Denmark, his relationships with leading musicians and patrons, the problems presented by the Thirty Years War, and the machinations of court life. One of the greatest creative figures of his time, Schutz emerges as a giant amongst his lesser contemporaries. This book will bring him and his work to a new and international audience."--Jacket.
