Schütz, Heinrich, Heu mihi Domine (SWV 65) EMP0766 £3.50
Office of the Dead - Respond ISMN M-2056-0766-1
This, surely the most penitential of the motets in Schütz' Cantiones Sacrae, is in many ways striking. Its text, alone of the collection, is derived from the Catholic liturgy, where it is closely related to a Respond at Matins for the Dead. The piece takes its place in the series taking their inspiration from Savonarola's famous meditation 'Infelix ego,' on Psalm 51 (Miserere mei Deus), which includes settings by Andrea Gabrieli, Lassus and Merulo. This version is offered a tone higher than the original.
