Compilation: Philips "Seon" 6775 017 [LPx2] Thomas Stoltzer: Die Vier Deutschen Psalmen.
Thomas Stoltzer (c.1480/5-1526) was one of the first Protestant composers, and many of the pieces recorded here are landmarks of some kind: the large-scale Psalm compositions are among the first liturgical vernacular compositions written, and the Tonorum melodiae (represented here by two pieces) are the first specifically instrumental compositions ever published. Also represented are some Latin-texted works, an instrumental song setting, and a German motet in honor of König and Maria Ludwig, regents of Hungary.
