The passage of time hasn’t dulled the craftsmanship and creativity in the chorales of Samuel Scheidt (1587–1654). Nearly four centuries after they were first published, the settings still sparkle with innovative harmonies and exuberant rhythmic flourishes. Over time, some of these chorales have changed in common usage from how they were originally published in 1650. This new edition of Samuel Scheidt’s chorales, edited by Steven Rhode, matches the keys, notes, and rhythms of current hymnals while remaining faithful to Scheidt’s musical intent.

The chorales included in this book are those that are still in common use. The settings vary in complexity. Some serve admirably as hymn intonations or varied accompaniments. Others are better suited to enriching and enlivening the ancillary music of the day. All possess the musical integrity and inventiveness that make them worthy for use during worship.
