 Update me on new releases by Schein

Johann Hermann Schein (1/20/1586 - 11/19/1630)

In 1616 the German composer and poet Johann Hermann Schein was appointed Thomaskantor in Leipzig, a position later held by Bach. His importance as a composer lies in the use he made of Italian monody and concerted style in Lutheran church music.

Church Music

Schein, primarily a vocal composer, wrote extensively for the church.

Secular Vocal Music

Schein wrote a number of madrigals and music suitable for either instruments or voices, again demonstrating Italian influence.

Ensemble Music

Schein's compositions also include some twenty Suites for instrumental ensemble.
