5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly Choir-Music March 17, 2008
Verified Purchase
By 1648, Heinrich Schuetz was both a survivor and a relic of his own past glory. The 63-year-old devout Lutheran had survived the religious slaughter of the Thirty Years War, which had killed more than half of the musicians of his German world. Surely the most influential composer of German history, he had also outlasted his own impact on the next generation of German composers, patrons, and audiences, who unjustly regarded his music as outdated. Who knows how he felt about his growing isolation, but it's interesting that he chose to compose one of his grandest and greatest accomplishments - the Geistliche Chormusik 1648, op. 11 - in the antiquated contrapuntal style of Renaissance vocal polyphony, the prima prattica, rather than the operatic Italianate seconda prattica he himself had introduced to German music. (The most obvious difference a modern listener might hear will be the absence of basso continuo, that is, of a chordal structure based on a bass.) In a sense, Schuetz was relinquishing the primacy of words over music, setting the familiar psalm texts to complexly intellectual counterpoint and letting the music convey the meaning. Schuetz's situation as the revered but no longer heard Master of the Chapel in Dresden oddly prefigures that of JS Bach, whose magnificently intellectual music was neglected by his own sons and pupils.

The motets of the "Spiritual Choir Music" are essentially a capella, though trombones and bassoons might serve in a few. Despite his re-commitment to prima prattica, Schuetz managed to blend his superb sense of musical drama into his dense counterpoint, relying on much shorter phrases and much more operatic sectional contrasts than the polyphony of the great Flemish masters of the 16th Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 'Geistliche Chormusik' ever heard October 31, 1999
Masaaka Suzuki and his Bach Collegium Japan convey the spirit of this music better than many german artists. Subtle, vivid, unpretentious and technically perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Harmony July 15, 2003
By A Customer
I realized the excellence of Schutz by Geistliche Chormusik. It condenses the sacred essence. The chorus has purity, tranquillity and harmony. Its harmony makes up the magnificent world of polyphony. There is also the beauty of German language. This is splendid music.

Schutz: Geistliche Chormusik, SWV 369-397 (Op 11) /Bach Collegium Japan * Suzuki is a recording under the direction of Masaaki Suzuki who leads the Bach Collegium Japan on this Grammophon AB BIS recording from 1997. The sound quality is astounding and on the same level as Deutsche Grammophon and harmonia mundi to mention a few. Nozomi Sato has written the music which are both extensive and well-written. Being a devout person I love the praises given unto God. The lyrics are available in English and German. Highly recommended. 5/5.
