Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684) was without a doubt the greatest German composer of his generation. He artfully combined elements of Italian and German styles to create distinctive and intensely beautiful music that sounds as fresh today as it did in the 17th century. Rosenmüller was born in southeastern Germany around 1619, just when the Thirty Years’ War was getting started. As a young man in 1640, Rosenmüller entered the University of Leipzig to study theology – a discipline that included music.
