SCHEIN.

4. 'Banchetto Musicale,' a collection of Pa- vanes, Gaillardes, etc., in 5 parts. 1617.

5. 'Opella Nova,' ist part, containing 'Geist- liche Concerte auf jetzo gebrauchliche Italien- ische invention componirt' (Sacred Concertos written in the new Italian style). 1618.

6. 'Musica boscareccia, Waldliederlein auf Italian - Villanellische Invention fingirt und componirt ' (Hunting or Forest Songs, com- posed in the style of Italian villanellas).

7. ' Fontana d'Israel,' ' Israelis Briinnlein aus- erlesener Kraftspriichlin altes und neuen Tes- taments, etc., auf ein sonderbare anmuthige Italian-Madrigalische Manier, etc., mit Fleiss componirt ' (Israel's fountain of select passages of the Old and New Testament, carefully com- posed in the specially graceful style of the Ita- lian Madrigal). 1623. In this work Schein gives up the basso continue, and goes back to the more purely vocal style of the old madrigal, permitting himself however the bolder harmonic license of the new style of Monteverde and other Italians. Wherever the words seem to justify his doing so, the composer delights in using un- prepared discords, and discords without resolu- tion, with perhaps too much straining after passionate expression.

8. ' Opella Nova,' 2nd part, 1626, contents similar to the ist part, both parts having basso continue and instrumental accompaniment.

Over 30 numbers from Schein's 'Cantional' may be found in Schoeberlein's 'Schatz des Liturgischen und Chor-gesangs/ Gb'ttingen, 1867-72. [J.R.M.]

��It is marked by perfect regularity of rhythm and absence of certain eccentricities noted in the article SONG, vol. iii. pp. 612, 613, as com- mon in the Cossack and Little

��and the words are a dialogue in rhymed verse. It is an interesting instance of a Volkslied of one country becoming domesticated in the same ca- pacity in another, and also of the extraordinary transformation which the song may undergo in the process. A very loose imitation of the words of this song, beginning * Schone Minka ich muss scheiden,' was published by the German poet Ch. A. Tiedge in 1808, and this, with the melody much altered, is now to be found in most collec- tions of German Volkslieder without notice of the Slavonic source. J. N. Hummel has made this air (rather in its original than in the German form) the subject of 'Adagio, Variazionen und Rondo fiber ein russisches Thema' for PF., violin, and violoncello, op. 78, and Weber wrote a set of brilliant variations for pianoforte on the same theme. [R.M.]
