Based on the biblical Book of Revelations and the events surrounding the Apocalypse, Franz Schmidt's The Book with Seven Seals is a most powerful testament to the declining romantic period in classical music. This solemn and steady oratorio, composed a year before Schmidt's death, focuses on the battle in heaven and is centered around a very basic four note bassline with the commanding Rene Pape in the role of God. There are some intriguing uses of organ solos, deep silences and suspended or abrupt shifts between sections, serving to heighten the.

Schmidt: Book with Seven Seals. Every ten years or so, when the dearth of great German composers becomes too hard to bear, record companies trot out Franz Schmidt's The Book With Seven Seals, a grand oratorio based on the Book of Revelations. As far as scale and ambition goes, there's no arguing against this work, even though it's about as dated as a stuffed auk.
