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 is another of Buxtehude's chorale preludes with the embellished chorale melody in the soprano. The chorale deals with the subject of hypocrisy. The first verse reads as follows, "The unwise tongue speaks plenty, "We mean to belong to the righteous God." But their heart is full of disbelief, and they deny him in their deeds. Their existence is corrupted, and it is an abomination before God, and doesn't achieve any good for anybody." The embellishment of the chorale is fairly active in this piece often lapsing into continuous sixteenth notes. It is also curious in the first half of the chorale how often the pedal stays out of the texture.
