Der 100. Psalm, SWV36
This recording presents Heinrich Schütz’s German setting from his great collection Psalmen Davids (published in 1619), scored for two four-voice choirs and continuo. The joyfulness of the text comes over in playful exchanges between the two choirs, although the calmer central section shows something of the range of the composer’s more expressive powers and responsiveness to text.
