An all-star collection of musical artists join forces to mark the 350th anniversary of prolific composer Heinrich Schütz’s death. Directly affected by the violence and political tension that accompanied the Thirty Year’s War (1618–1648), Schütz produced works of comfort and lamentation to directly comment on the conflict. Alongside the famous Saul, Saul, was verfolgst du mich? (1650) and settings of the Psalms of David are works by the composer’s contemporaries, revolving around the ever-prevalent theme of peace in times of war.

Featured artists: Arwen Myers soprano, Danielle Reutter-Harrah soprano, Nicholas Burns alto, Lawrence Williford tenor, Sumner Thompson baritone, musica intima, Cappella Borealis, Baroque Orchestra Mentorship Programme, Pacific Baroque Orchestra directed by Alexander Weimann
