(1604 - 1651)

The German poet and composer Heinrich Albert was born in 1604 in Lobenstein. He assisted his cousin Schütz in Dresden, studied law in Leipzig, and finally settled in Königsberg, where he served as organist at the cathedral.

Songs and Choral Music

Albert is chiefly known for his eight volumes of Arien (‘Songs’), published between 1638 and 1650. He also wrote many other works, including motets for church use. His work reflects the influence of Schein, whom he had known in Leipzig.
