Dieterich Buxtehude was a Danish-German composer and organist in the late 17th century. Famous in his own day, he was sought out by other musicians, and Johann Sebastian Bach, as a young man, famously walked 250 miles to meet the master and hear his music! This compelling piece has been described as “a king’s ransom of vocal beauty, moving at times in … sequences that resemble pop music-styled harmonic movement”.
