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.

The commemoration of Buxtehude's death in 2007 resulted in widespread interest in his vocal works. Buxtehude left more than 120 such pieces, which is remarkable considering that as organist of St Mary's in Lübeck he was not responsible for the vocal music for the liturgy. Some of his sacred music may have been performed during the services on Sundays and feastdays, but most of it was probably intended for performance during public concerts, in particular the famous Abendmusiken.

His vocal works are written on texts in four different languages: German, Latin, Swedish and Italian. The largest proportion has a German text, but the number of pieces on a Latin text is considerable. This is not as odd as one may think. When Martin Luther reformed the liturgy he stressed the importance of the use of texts in the vernacular, but he never wanted to abolish Latin altogether. It seems there was a preference for liturgical music in Latin in St Mary's in Lübeck. An inventory of the printed music in the possession of the church shows that a large portion set Latin texts.

This traditional Protestant "Missa alla brevis" is written in the stile antico, the old style of the renaissance which was still held in high esteem in the 17th century. The surviving copy, in the Duben Collection, dates from 1675. The title refers to the longer note values and the tactus on the brevis, but also to the fact that it is a missa brevis, consisting of Kyrie and Gloria only. Although it was originally scored for five voices with basso continuo (2 sopranos, alto, tenor and bass accompanied by organ), I adapted this work for the traditional woodwind quintet (Flute, Oboe, clarinet (Bb) French Horn and Bassoon) to accentuate their warm rich tones.
