AbstractThis document is really a tale of two Heinrichs. The first is the famous seventeenth-century German musician, Heinrich Schütz (1585- 1672), composer of the Musikalische Exequien (S WV 279 -281). The second is Prince Heinrich Posthumus von Reuss (1572- 1635), for whose funeral the Exequien was written. Portraits of both men appear on the opposite page.
