Johann David Heinichen (1683–1729) is known today principally as the author of the great 1728 treatise Der General-Baß in der Composition, a comprehensive discussion of the practice of continuo realization and of its place in the art of composition. But Heinichen also occupied one of the most prestigious musical posts in Europe, that of kapellmeister to the Royal and Electoral court in Dresden. This volume contains a selection of the music he composed for the office of Vespers in the court church during the 1720s. Second only to the Mass in importance in Catholic liturgy, the different components of the Vespers service—the psalms, Marian antiphons, hymns, and Magnificat—afforded composers great opportunity for a variety of dramatic expression, an opportunity that Heinichen fully exploited. Heinichen’s settings use a mixture of chorus and vocal solos and are all with instrumental accompaniment.
