Georg Patermann: Two Wedding Motets

Quam pulchrae sunt mammae tuae (1610)
Sponsa velut Christo juncta est Ecclesia Sponso (1619)

These two motets are the only surviving works by Georg Patermann, and show him to be a composer of talent, even by the high standards set by the many protestant church musicians at the start of the seventeenth century. At the same time, the pieces reflect the way that music was used at that time – as an accompaniment to the celebration of love and as a part of prosperous burghers’ self-presentation.

The purpose of this edition is to bring these neglected testimonies of music history to public attention. Read more about the composer and his time in the preface to the score available for download below.
