On June 21, 1935 the Reichspost issued a set of three stamps to celebrate three famous German musicians. The stamps commemorate Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672), Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), and Georg Friedrich Handel (1685-1759). The set was first placed on sale on June 21, at the Bachfest Leipzig (Leipzig Bach Festival), a music festival which took place annually in the city of Leipzig, where J. S. Bach worked as the ‘Thomaskantor’ from 1723 until his death in 1750. The city first hosted a festival in 1904, for the Neue Bachgesellschaft, and then formally, since 1908. The festival was sometimes referred to as the ‘Bachwochen’ (Bach Weeks) or ‘Bachtage’ (Bach Days). All three musicians are commemorated in the ‘Calendar of Saints’ of the Lutheran Church on 28 July.
