Today the Cantiones sacrae (1625) remain in the shadow of Schutz's much more well known motet collection, the Geistliche Chormusik of 1648. This is due on the one hand to their Latin texts and to the devotional texts which often are not taken from the Bible, and on the other hand to the highly expressive style of the Cantiones. Schutz demands that the singers be open to a highly unusual music rich with dissonances. The reward for this venture will be an extraordinary depth and expressiveness and music truly beyond compare.
