Notes & Reviews:
This CD contains selections from two of Schutz's three sets of Symphoniae Sacrae. The first set, composed in 1629, uses Latin texts, while the second and third sets are set to German texts. Schutz's genius lay in his ability to set words to music. The rhythmic strength of his music lies in his ability to capture the nuances of the words, and this skill enabled him to make a major contribution to Luther's aim of establishing the vernacular as the literary and liturgical language of the Protestant religion. Capella Augustana is recording the complete works of Schutz for Brilliant Classics, which will consist of 30 CDs.
