dc.description.abstractThis study demonstrates how the compositional choices Heinrich Schütz made while completing Weihnachtshistorie reflect the influence of musica poetica and musical rhetoric. The study examines how selected musical processes accomplish rhetorical or persuasive goals. Special attention is paid to the musical-rhetorical methods Schütz used to individualize, illuminate, and highlight the personal qualities of each of the mortal characters through musical means to strengthen the overall credibility of the story. The study reveals that the colorful manner in which Schütz paints his characters, while aesthetically pleasing, is a consequence of the application of rhetorical principles to musical composition meant to persuade the listener of the central theological proposition of the work.
