Who wrote All Glory be to Thee?

Dear Friends,

For this weekend's postlude, I will play All Glory be to Thee by Samuel Scheidt. Scheidt was a German organist and composer of the early Baroque era. He was born in Halle, but moved to Amsterdam at an early age to study with noted composer Jan Sweelink. Upon returning to Halle, he was appointed Kappellmeister to the Margrave of Brandenburg. Despite great success there, Scheidt lost his position as a result of the Thirty Years' War. He was later reinstated, however, once the war was over.


Enjoy the music this weekend and stay well!
