This cycle contains Aller Augen warten auf dich, Herre SWV 429, one of the composer's most popular vocal works. The twelve four-part motet-style settings published in 1657 demonstrate all the attributes of his mature style, using simple homophonic settings as effectively as demanding polyphony. They represent something of a counterpart to the 1648 Geistliche Chormusik, but here, Schutz paid greater attention to practical use in church services and to the training of the Dresden choirboys.
