Johann Hermann Schein's Israelsbrunnlein, published in Leipzig in 1623, is a supreme achievement not only among the works of this composer, who had been Thomaskantor in Leipzig since 1616, but also for the entire body of German music written during the first half of the 17th century. Among the 26 motets written "in the Italian madrigal manner" 23 are settings of Old Testament texts, a fact to which the collection owes its title. The source for the text of this collection is the "inexhaustible fountain" of the Psalms, the books of Moses, the Prophets, the Songs of Solomon, and other books of the Old Testament.
