Abstract:The sacred choral music of Andreas Hammerschmidt (1611/12-1675) includes some forty-eight pieces which call for one or more trombones, and twelve that require no other instruments besides trombones and basso continuo to accompany the voices. Despite the ready availability of source material, most of these pieces have yet to be made available for study and performance. By creating a modern performance edition of three of these works, I hope to encourage their re-introduction into the active repertory of professional, amateur, and scholastic early music performance groups and to encourage further study of this oft-overlooked composer. The performance edition is prefaced by an introduction to the life and music of Hammerschmidt, an overview of central German liturgical music of the seventeenth century, and an analysis of the selected pieces: “Wer von Gott ist,” “Seid barmherzig,” and “Wo bleibt die brüderliche Lieb.”
