About

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck (1562-1621) is one of the few composers of the Northern Netherlands who enjoyed an international reputation during his lifetime. Known as the ‘Orpheus of Amsterdam’, students came from all over Europe to copy his music and adopt his style.
 
The musical settings on this CD are just a small sample of the massive project he undertook to compose settings from all 150 Psalms. Early music specialists Peter Phillips, William Christie and Ton Koopman conduct the Netherlands Chamber Choir.
