ANDREAS HAMMERSCHMIDT  

(1611 - 1675)

Peter Maxwell Davies Born to a family of Saxon origin in Bohemia, Andreas Hammerschmidt moved, after the return of his native town to Catholicism, to Freiberg, where he was later employed as organist at StPetri, before moving in 1639 to Zittau in a similar position, remaining there until his death in 1675. He won a considerable reputation as a composer, organist and teacher, his activities materially rewarded by the Zittau city council.

Vocal Music

Hammerschmidt wrote a quantity of sacred music, including sacred concertos in the style of the time and hymns. He published two collections of secular vocal music and a third that also included sacred works.
