In those times there were local pageants, called “mystery plays,” in which the common folk performed dramatized stories from the Bible. This carol was part of the Pageant of the Shearmen and Taylors held in Coventry. It is the emotional climax of this long play and its plaintive melody is most effective.

  • Die himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes (Schütz) – Brass Quintet

    Heinrich Schütz (1585 – 1672) was a Renaissance composer and is generally considered the most important German composer prior to Johann Sebastian Bach. His compositions show the influence of his teacher, Gabrieli.

    One of the last composers to write in modal style, the text for this piece is from Psalm 19. The title translates to: The heavens are telling the glory of God.

    Originally written for six voices, the piece is ideal for brass quintet and will sound glorious in a church or recital setting.

    Thanks to the Vista Brass Quintet for sending a recording of this piece.

    The Vista Brass Quintet features Emily Lawyer and Tim Winfield – trumpet, Anne Marie Cherry – horn, Charles Lilly – trombone and Todd Eames – bass trombone.
