JAN PIETERSZOON SWEELINCK  

(1562 - 1621)

The Netherlands composer and organist Sweelinck was among the leading musicians of his day, much in demand also as a teacher. He occupies an important position particularly in the development of keyboard music in the early 17th century. He was employed for some 44 years at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.

Choral and Vocal Music

Sweelinck was prolific in the provision of church music. He produced settings of French psalm translations and Latin motets, in addition to secular chansons and Italian madrigals.

Keyboard Music

Sweelinck wrote keyboard music for both secular and sacred use. The first of these includes song variations for harpsichord and, among other pieces, a tribute to Dowland in Pavana Lachrymae, using John Dowland’s most famous melody. In addition to various toccatas and fantasias Sweelinck also provided variations on sacred themes.
