Musikalische Exequien

  • The Basilica of St. Fidelis 900 Cathedral Victoria, KS, 67671 United States (map)

This early German Baroque music by Heinrich Schütz was composed with a text compiled by Count Henry II of Ruess-Gera for his own funeral. It has grown to become one of Schütz’s most beloved works and is a quintessential example of his unmatched use of language in music. The picturesque basilica in Victoria serves as the stage for this choral masterpiece.
