O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

A baker’s son, Schulz attended the Lateinschulen in Lüneberg, and studied the organ. After moving to Berlin in 1768, he became teacher and accompanist to Polish princess Saphieha Woiwodin von Smolensky; they toured extensively through Europe. He later began writing opera, his first being Clarissa in 1785. The next year, he became musical director of the Berlin French theater. In 1786, he was appointed Hofkapellmeister in Rheinsburg. Two years later, he held the same post in Copenhagen. He remained in the Copenhagen office 18 years, being brought to an end by a breakdown of his health after trying to save the music library at Copenhagen during a fire. His health further suffered from the effects of a shipwreck he was the victim of in 1796. Schulz’ works include:
