Die himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes (Schütz) – Flute Choir
Heinrich Schütz (1585 – 1672) was a Renaissance composer is regarded as 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 flute choir and will sound glorious in a church or recital setting.
