Two Titans of the German Baroque

Schuetz ImageHeinrich Schütz and George Frideric Handel will be in the spotlight when Nota Bene Players & Singers (Howard Dyck, Artistic Director) and Theatre of Early Music (Daniel Taylor, Artistic Director) appear in concert in Hanover, Dundas and Waterloo

2022 marks the 350th anniversary of the death of Heinrich Schütz, the undisputed giant of the early German baroque. Although he is not as well known as Bach and Handel, his music is rich and expressive and deserving of much greater exposure. Howard Dyck maintains that “Bach and Handel’s fabulous compositions are unthinkable without the antecedent masterpieces of Heinrich Schütz”. The greater part of his large output was created in the crucible of the Thirty Years’ War. Musikalische Exequien, his best-known work, was composed in 1635 or 1636 for the funeral of Count Heinrich II of Reuss-Gera. It will be the main work on this concert which features nationally and internationally recognized artists, including soprano Sinéad White, countertenor, Daniel Taylor, tenor Rufus Müller, and baritone Jonathan Adams.

The program also features The Ways of Zion do Mourn, composed in 1737 by Handel for the funeral of Queen Caroline.
