Concertzender Live – the Psalms of David by Schütz
Concertzender Live on Sunday 10 November (15.00-17.00) continues our recordings of the Festival of Early Music 2012 with a performance by La Chapelle Rhénane of the Psalms of David.
Heinrich Schütz learned the polychoral style from Gabrieli en introduced this style into German church music.
Schütz had published a book of madrigals in Venice. This book contained the ambitious 'Psalm of David', written for up to four choirs. This work from Schütz started a revolution.
You can listen to our live recording of the concert by La Chapelle Rhénane directed by Benoît Haller, made on 26 augustus 2012 in de Utrechtse Pieterskerk.
