Samuel Scheidt was an influential early Baroque composer, organist and teacher. He resided in Germany during the Thirty Years' War taking on teaching and other odd jobs to survive. At the end of the war he took on a post in charge of music for the German Court. His compositions include a large amount of instrumental music, mostly for organ as well as sacred choral works.
This work is most typical of his writing style. It starts out with a dance like phrase presented in a fugue like style where each instrument takes a turn. This then builds with variations on that phrase adding ornaments that most likely came from his organ writing. The dance phrase then continues with a most pleasing variation in triple meter which then transitions back to the original theme and a climactic end.
This particular work is very popular with brass quintets and fun to play. It provides a pleasing entry for almost any church or non-church performance.
