Description: In his Christmas cantata Siehe, eine Jungfrau ist schwanger we experience Schürmann as a composer of gripping ensemble compositions with finely chiseled fugue subjects. For many years the anonymous New Year’s cantata Nimm das Opfer unsrer Hertzen was also ascribed to Schürmann. Although Georg Österreich is now assumed to have been its composer, the opening aria in particular with its highly effective postponement of the resolution of dissonances displays a clear stylistic closeness to Schürmann’s opera arias from this time. German-English texts. Weser-Renaissance Bremen; Manfred Cordes.
