At the center of this volume are two extensive collections of works by Werlin and Staden. Even three years after the end of the terrible and protracted Thirty Years War, Stadens relief is given palpable expression in the first part of his Friedens-Gesänge, when the three main rivers Danube, Elbe and Rhine articulate their joy in peace one after the other. Geographically, the volume also does full justice to the series title Musical Monuments ... in Bavaria, since the cities in which the composers lived and worked Werlin in Lindau, Franck in Coburg and Staden in Nuremberg mark out the present-day boundaries of the German Federal State of Bavaria with surprising accuracy.
