Crossing Confessional Boundaries

The Patronage of Italian Sacred Music in Seventeenth-Century Dresden

Mary E. Frandsen

  • First critical examination of this period in the musical history of the Dresden court since the mid-nineteenth century.
  • Draws heavily upon primary source materials from archives in Dresden, accessible to western scholars only since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
  • Includes a close examination of the texts set by these composers and their relationship to contemporary Lutheranism
  • Uses surviving liturgical sources to place the music within its original worship context, and to closely examine the role of music in the celebration of worship throughout the seasons of the church year.
