One of the grandest of all of Schütz Psalm settings is his version of today's designated Psalm 85. On a much larger scale than even the longest of the Psalms of David 1619. The work may have been written for some great wedding. It comes down to us in a slightly incomplete form. The continuo part is missing and was reconstructed by the great nineteenth-century Schütz scholar Philip Spitta. In terms of amazing specific text setting the work has no equal in Schütz' output.
