The Sechs Evangelien-Motets(Six Gospel Motets) were composed by Johann Nepomuk David in 1957/58 and published as single editions by Breitkopf & Härtel in 1958. By this time, he was professor of music theory and counterpoint at the conservatory in Stuttgart. This later period of his composing activities also expresses itself in the music: demanding counterpoint is connected with expressive chromaticism and wide-range dynamic differentiation in these six settings of gospel texts. Compared to the almost simultaneously composed and published Sechs Evangelien-Motets by Siegfried Strohbach (ChB 5360), the settings by David are of a higher difficulty level and therefore more suited to chamber choirs and other ambitious ensembles.
