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.

The chorale melody set in these two preludes has its roots in the Gregorian chant repertoire. It is a German version of the Veni Sancte Spiritus chant. The chorale would have been sung at Pentecost. The text of the first verse reads as follows, "Come Holy Ghost, Lord God, fill with your good mercy the heart, soul, and mind of your faithful, igniting them with your burning love. Oh Lord, through your glowing light you have gathered to belief this people from all of the world's tongues. For this you are praised with song. Halleluja, Halleluja." Both of Buxtehude's settings of the chorale place the chorale melody in the soprano with a fair amount of embellishment.

Have downloaded with parts from MuseScore and will play on Oct 9. We find this composer trickier than Boehm, Telemann, Handel, not sure why, but we tend to get out of synch. Thanks Mike.
