Schein: Da Jakob vollendet hatte

July 24, 2017

 

[Vocal Tuesday]

 

Johann Hermann Schein (1586 - 1630) was one of the most important early Baroque German composers. He was known for his use of Italian late Renaissance madrigalistic style. He wrote over 350 sacred works and near a hundred secular ones. Here is a motet 'Da Jakob vollendet hatte' from his 'Israelis Brünnlein', published in 1623. If you like this piece, please come hear us perform it live on 8 Aug: https://www.facebook.com/events/336671320109402/

Translation of text:
When Jacob had finished the instructions to his children, he drew up his feet into the bed and died;
and was gathered to his people.
Then Joseph fell upon his father's face
and wept over him, and kissed him.
