Description: Psalm 14 from the Becker Psalter. Although the original (Renaissance) melody by Martin Luther is in Lydian mode, Schütz' interpretation is more modern (Baroque) and the lowest point is therefore not an "e♭" but an "e". Unfortunately Blankenburg did not consider this in his edition when combining the Cantus part (Soprano) and the Altus part in one staff.
