This concert is subtitled Early Lutheran Music from Walter to Schutz -- those in between including Senfl, Stolzer, Eccard, and Praetorius, among others). The choir sings music inspired by Luther's revolution and by the new chorale tunes that Lutheranism generated.  Featured will be Schütz’s Musikalische Exequiem (Funeral Music), a 17th-century "German Requiem" of great eloquence equal to that of Brahms (who was an ardent admirer of Schutz's music).
