老良漫游教堂建筑This church is closely related to Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672), the greatest German composer of the seventeenth century. He is buried in this church. Of course it is in the old one. It is a pity that it was destroyed when the new church was built. Less than 40 years after Martin Luther's death, Schütz was born. He gave great artistic achievements to the music of the German Protestant Church. Regarding Schütz, he actually studied law at the beginning. When he was a church choir singer at the age of 13, he was discovered by the Earl of Hessen-Kassel and funded his research in different fields of music. In 1609, he went to Venice, where he spent three years studying music. It can be said that he is a very talented musician. He also uses all the gifts God has given him to church music: 500 works handed down by him-almost all composed according to the Luther Bible. The Seven Words on the Death of Jesus Christ, written in 1645, can be said to be one of his best works, but it was a pity that he had not been able to perform it until his death, and it was not published until 1873.
