Though best known for his wind music Johann Pezel actually wrote more than twice as many instrumental works for strings. His entire instrumental oeuvre is examined and evaluated in this catalogue which includes an extended introductory essay over 500 incipits and fifteen plates of original title pages and parts.
Elwyn A. Wienandt
Professor of musicology in the Baylor University School of Music. He has published more than 110 compositions for vocal and instrumental ensembles, editions, arrangements, and original works. His interests in research have taken him, in addition to church music and its history, into lute music, choral music, and the history of American music.
He is the author of Choral Music and the Church, and, with Robert H. Young, The Anthem in England and America. Also among Dr. Weinandt's published works are Bicentennial Collection of American Music (1974), and Johann Pezel: A Thematic Catalog of His Instrumental Works (1983).
