Dietrich Buxtehude, composer

Dietrich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) was active for nearly forty years as organist of St. Mary's Church in Lübeck and was one of the chief figures in North German music of his time. His vocal church music together with his organ music and other instrumental works earn him pride of place among composers between Heinrich Schütz and J.S. Bach, who studied with Buxtehude in Lübeck as a young man.

"Kirkby's keen but silvery voice and accomplished artistry are known qualities, as are the talents of these players, so that high performance quality is given here ... Clearly this is a series to watch" (American Record Guide)

"So ist diese Einspielung als erste einer Gesamtaufnahme mehr als nur vielversprechend - sie ist im Bereich der Buxtehude-Interpretation richtungsweisend und setzt höchste Maßstäbe" (Alte Musik Aktuell)

"An outstanding release" ***** (BBC Music Magazine)

"Soprano Emma Kirkby is typically charming and superbly expressive" (Classical Review)

"The issue of Buxtehude songs finds Emma Kirkby singing with not only tonal beauty but also her customary consummate intelligence" (Fanfare)
