Heinrich Schütz

A significant predecessor to J S Bach was Heinrich Schütz, born 8 October 1585 in Köstritz. He studied under Giovanni Gabrieli in Venice, returning to Germany as court organist at Kassel. Other appointments in both Germany and Denmark followed as his skill as a composer became widespread. He died in Dresden on 6 November 1672.
