Feb. 8, 2008, By CHARLES WARD / Houston Chronicle
Houston’s early-music scene is getting another major boost with the founding of the Heinrich Schütz Choir of Texas.
Based at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, in Midtown, the new ensemble debuts on April 20 with a Vesper service featuring Schütz’s Musikalische Exequien, an hour-plus work considered the composer’s most important funeral music. Allen Hightower, director of choral activities at Sam Houston State University, will conduct. The initial concert will feature 24 singers, period instruments and other works of Schütz.
