Heinrich Schütz’s Birthday

Heinrich Schütz was born on this day 8 October (O.S) 1585.

I’m only sorry that I didn’t know about this composer until only in the past five years, which is my loss really as his music is so…celestial? Heavenly? I ‘m not quite certain which adjective best describes his music. If you have a moment or two, perhaps you’ll let me know what you think of it. Therefore, please join me in listening to a few of his beautiful works:
