Music Notes

Hymn 408: Sing Praise

This text is a translation of a 17th-century German hymn written by Johann Jakob Schütz (1640-1690), a Pietist lawyer. Horrified by the ferocious actions by both Lutherans and Catholics in the Thirty Years' War, the Pietists advocated a retreat from public life to a deeply personal, private religion. You can see pietistic influence in the rejection of earthly kings and thrones at the end of verses two and three, and in the hymn's call for allegiance to God alone. The jaunty tune, from 16th-Germany, was also popular in France for both psalms and secular songs; its title means "with tender joy." --Donna Wessel Walker

O Come Let Us Sing Unto the Lord (Piccolo)

After completing his studies at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, Anthony Piccolo (b. 1953) moved to England. He sang with the cathedral choirs of Litchfield, Canterbury, and St. Paul's in London during his nine year stay there; this morning's anthem was composed for Canterbury Cathedral. On his return to the United States, Piccolo was active as a conductor at the New York City Opera and elsewhere in addition to his work as a composer and pianist. --Dennis Powers
