SamuelScheidt was an influential early Baroque composer, organist and teacher. Heresided in Germany during the Thirty Years' War taking on teaching and otherodd jobs to survive. At the end of the war he took on a post in charge of musicfor the German Court. His compositions include a large amount of instrumentalmusic, mostly for organ as well as sacred choral works.  

This work ismost typical of his writing style. It starts out with a dance like phrasepresented in a fugue like style where each instrument takes a turn. This thenbuilds with variations on that phrase adding ornaments that most likely camefrom his organ writing. The dance phrase then continues with a most pleasingvariation in triple meter which then transitions back to the original theme anda climactic end.  

Thisparticular work is very popular with brass quintets and fun to play. Itprovides a pleasing entry for almost any church or non-church performance.
