Dietrich Buxtehude is probably most familiar to modern classical music audiences as the man who inspired the young Johann Sebastian Bach to make a lengthy pilgrimage to Lubeck, Buxtehude's place of employment and residence for most of his life, just to hear Buxtehude play the organ. But Buxtehude was a major figure among German Baroque composers in his own right. Though we do not have copies of much of the work that most impressed his contemporaries, Buxtehude nonetheless left behind a body of vocal and instrumental music which is distinguished by its contrapuntal skill, devotional atmosphere, and raw intensity. He helped develop the form of the church cantata, later perfected by Bach, and he was just as famous a virtuoso on the organ.

This D major effort follows the pattern Buxtehude used for his preludia, or preludes. It opens with an introductory episode in free form followed by a fugal portion, which typically comes in two related sections or, as is the case here, three. The work begins with an exchange of arpeggiated chords from the two manuals, after which the pedals enter with their heftier sonorities to further enrich the musical canvas, and to impart the sense the notes are in lively dialogue amid the increasingly lively, regal atmosphere. The first fugal section soon follows, presenting a modest single line at the outset, which then quickly accrues contrapuntal activity. The pacing is lively but not swift, the music gradually taking on an atmosphere of grandeur as chords thicken and the busy manner slackens. A brief Adagio section ensues, bringing on big chords and huge washes of sound. The final panel here is cast in toccata form, with several brilliantly contrasting sections, Buxtehude deftly mixing virtuosic with epic music. The work ends in a blaze of triumph, with powerful sustained chords from the manuals and pedals alike.
