Motet Notes

Heinrich Schütz: "Viel werden kommen," SWV 375 - Geistliche Chormusik


The little motet “Viel werden kommen von Morgen und von Abend” has a curious benign tone. Taking as a reference the Epiphany, the work goes on to describe the last judgment. As John Harbison has said, the last judgment is here more Fra Angelico than Michelangelo in tone.
