Heinrich Schütz is generally regarded as a master of the art of setting text to music, particularly the text of the Bible in its unaltered form which was of substantial significance to Lutheran doctrine. On the other hand, there are only few examples of settings of rhymed texts in Schützs oeuvre. One of these is the so-called Becker-Psalter, a collection of psalm translations by the Leipzig theologian Cornelius Becker.
