Motet Notes

Heinrich Schütz: "Seid barmherzig," SWV 409 - Symphoniae Sacrae III

“Seid barmherzig” is one of the great sacred concertos that Schütz published in his third and last volume of Sacred Symphonies. Four soloists strengthened at several points by the chorus lay out, in great detail, the moving text. The two obbligato violins and bassoon punctuate the discourse.
