August 20, birthday of Elisabeth Sophie of Mecklenburg

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I won’t post.  On with today’s composer.

Duchess Elisabeth Sophie of Mecklenburg (1613 – 1676) was a German composer an poet. She is probably the first female composer whose work was published. She wrote mostly hymns and collaborated with the composer Heinrich Schütz.

Once again, I can’t find any recordings of her works.  Do any of you, dear readers, have any leads?

    I wish I could provide a lead. Alas, I cannot, but applaud your efforts.
