    Aims and Scope

    Sabbath Desire of the Soul was a critical milestone in the early modern generic tradition of pericope lyrics. Before Rist, such authors as Johann Heermann, Andreas Gryphius, and Philipp Georg Harsdörffer had helped create this genre. The book documents Rist’s first collaboration with the renowned Hamburg cathedral choirmaster Thomas Selle, one that was later continued in the New Musical Devotions for Festivals (1655).
