About The Event

To commemorate the 350th anniversary of the death of Heinrich Schütz, period instrument ensemble Endelienta Baroque have collaborated with tenor David de Winter to create a programme of solo vocal works that reflects the profound influence the composer had on the music of seventeenth-century Germany. Often named as the greatest German composer before Bach, Schütz synthesised Italianate styles with the music of his immediate German predecessors to create a musical language that was well-crafted yet candidly simple, virtuosic yet direct and striking. This programme revels in celebratory, praise-giving sacred vocal works by Schütz and gives voice to his often-neglected contemporaries and immediate successors, exploring the common threads that established Schütz’s legacy as the father of German vocal music. A wonderful sound-world to enjoy in the spectacular setting of Beverley Minster’s Quire.
