Ah, the climax of the Psalter

Now, this is LUTHERAN music. It's a shame no one uses this great music for Lutheran church services anymore.

On a personal note, if there was not Schutz, there could have been no Bach.

AMEN, Chris! And don't tell anyone I said this, but give me Schütz over Bach any day. I love them both, but Schütz has the gift of making a whole bunch of music that doesn't sound...well, the same, if you know what I mean. Heresy, I know.
