Crossing Confessional Boundaries: The Patronage of Italian Sacred Music in Seventeenth-Century Dresden

Mary Frandsen


This book is an examination of the uneasy alliance of two confessions, Lutheran and Catholic, at the prominent seventeenth-century Germany court of Dresden. It examines the implications of this alliance for the repertoire of sacred art music cultivated there; an influential repertoire that has received only scant attention from scholars.

Keywords: music patronage, Lutheran, Catholic, Dresden, seventeenth-century Germany, sacred art music
