Dietrich Buxtehude, composer

Dietrich Buxtehude (ca. 1637-1707) was one of the chief figures in North German music of his time. Although he never held a position that required him to compose vocal music, he left over 120 vocal works featuring an extremely wide range of texts, scorings, genres, and compositional styles. This second volume of the Naxos re-issue edition of the complete vocal music recorded by Dacapo includes such masterpieces as Alles, was ihr tut, Buxtehude's most popular cantata during his lifetime, and one of the finest examples of the late sacred concerto, the dramatic Fürwahr, er trug unsere Krankheit, an intense and expressive setting of the passion theme which is remarkable for its stark dynamic contrasts and rests.

Clearly this is a series to watch.
(American Record Guide)

This is a beautiful recording of some of Buxtehude's most interesting vocal works. This composer deserves to be much better known; these works are remarkable in their emotion and feeling.
(Classical Music Web)

Ebbe Munk arbeitet mit seinem Knabenchor und dem Dufay Collective die für Buxtehude charakteristische Spannung zwischen repräsentativen Gesten und tiefer Verinnerlichung sehr gut heraus. So erhalten die Kantaten einen strahlenden Glanz und einen lebhaften Impetus; zugleich sind sie Ausdruck einer sehr aufrichtigen Religiosität. Der Predigtcharakter könnte durch eine klarere Aussprache noch deutlicher werden; ansonsten ist Munks Interpretation vorbildlich
