Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1637 to 1639) was a German-Danish organist and composer of the Baroque period. His organ works represent a central part of the standard organ repertoire and are frequently performed at recitals and in church services. He composed in a wide variety of vocal and instrumental idioms, and his style strongly influenced many composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach. Buxtehude, along with Heinrich Schütz, is considered today to be one of the most important German composers of the mid-Baroque.

"Nun bitten wir den heiligen Geist" (BuxWV 209) was sung at Pentecost Sunday mass. The text of the chorale asks the Holy Ghost for various favors. The first verse reads as follows: "Now we ask the Holy Ghost for a righteous faith, and that he protect us up to the our end, when we travel home from this misery. Kyrieleis." Buxtehude places the chorale melody in the soprano range and ornaments it freely and elegantly. Unlike the other setting of the same chorale BuxWV 208, the ornamentation never shifts the octave placement of the melody.

Although originally created for choir, I adapted this work for the traditional woodwind quartet (Flute, Clarinet (Bb), Oboe and Bassoon).
