Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1707)

Sierra Club

Summary

Buxtehude served as organist for forty years, from 1667 until his death in 1707. He wrote a considerable quantity of music, choral and instrumental, for church use, as well as chamber music and keyboard music of a more secular kind. Buxtehude's surviving compositions for the organ include some 20 Preludes and a larger number of chorale preludes, variations on Lutheran chorale melodies. [Adapted from HNH International]
