Despite recordings, Buxtehude’s cantatas are rarely heard. Rarer still are those composers with whom Buxtehude associated: Christian Geist, Nicolaus Bruhns, Franz Tunder and Kaspar Förster, whose works for voices and instruments, together with Buxtehude’s, are the subject of this recording. And what marvels they are! A particular discovery for me is Bruhns’s De profundis, but all pieces demonstrate the highest level of craftsmanship and are given excellent performances that capture the lively rhetorical spirit of the music admirably. This CD is highly recommended, especially to those fascinated by late 17th-century north German and Danish music.
