Published in 1648, Heinrich Schutz's"Geistliche Chor-Music"is still regarded as one of his seminal works.
A two-volume performance edition based on Werner Breig's revised new text was published in 2012 and 2013 (BA 5901/BA 5902).
Now selected motets are being issued in separate volumes. They offer a modern notation and layout, retain the original keys and include an integrated figured bass realisation.
In keeping with contemporary performance practice, the 'choral' parts can be performed by instruments as well as voices. Instrumental parts with underlaid words may be purchased separately for performances with instruments (see performance material for BA 5901 and BA 5902).
