With his three purely a cappella Passions, Schutz closes his series of historical settings: text-oriented compositions that are both technically demanding and intensely expressive. These are works of maturity, which bring an entire musical period to a close. With the Stuttgart Schutz Edition, Carus-Verlag offers the trilogy of Schutz's Passions in critical editions with detailed information about their composition, transmission, and performance practice.
