Scheidt, Samuel

(3 November 1587, Halle, Germany – 24 March 1654, Halle)
   After studying with Jan Pieterzoon Sweelinck in Amsterdam, he returned to Halle in 1609 as court organist to the Margrave Christian Wilhelm, rising to Kapellmeister in late 1619 or early 1620. Scheidt suffered unemployment and other professional misfortune during the Thirty Years War but remained in Halle and resumed his official duties as Kapellmeister in 1638 for Duke August of Saxony. His most famous work is the three-volume collection of 57 chorale preludes, fugues, canons and other organ pieces in Tabulatura {}Nova of 1624. He harmonized 100 chorales in four voices in the Görlitzer Tabulatur-Buch of 1650. He also composed 176 sacred concertos published in four volumes (1631, 1634, 1635, 1640) and more than 80 other sacred vocal works, mostly in the Italian concerted style with continuo.
