Hammerschmidt, Andreas

▪ Austrian-Bohemian composer
born 1611/12, Brüx, Bohemia [now Most, Czech Republic]
died Oct. 29, 1675, Zittau [Germany]

      Austro-Bohemian composer whose work became an important source of music used in the Lutheran (Lutheranism) service of worship.

      Nothing is known of his early life, but in 1633 he was in the service of Count Rudolf von Bünau. In 1635 Hammerschmidt was organist at the Peterskirche in Freiberg, and four years later he moved to Zittau, becoming organist at the Johanneskirche, where he stayed for the remaining 36 years of his life. As a composer, he left a large output that is important in the history of Lutheran music. In form, his cantatas foreshadow those of the 18th century, although they show little variety in mood or treatment. His sources are mainly the chorales (chorale) and the German Bible. His works include a set of 16 Lutheran masses (consisting only of the Kyrie and the Gloria); a collection of madrigals for unaccompanied singers, Geistliche Madrigalien (“Sacred Madrigals”); a set of sacred symphonies for one or two voices with strings and continuo; and 3 books of secular songs, Weltliche Oden (“Worldly Odes”).
