There are at least 14 recordings of this piece on Contrebombarde and many recordings on CD. So I have no ambition to compete with any of these recordings.

But I'd like to show you how well Northern-German baroque music and in particular this Buxtehude piece sounds on this Thuringian baroque organ.

A curious thing; the opening always reminds me of the exact some opening of the bass aria 'Wer bist du?' of Cantata BWV 132. Is this coincidence or not?
Listen to:

In this aria there is a musical game of questions and answers, due to the text. I like to think the same of the opening of BuxWV 137. A question in the opening, then some wandering to search for an answer. Then there is a quick answer in the first chord, and so on. Probably too much thinking involved, but I like the rhetorical suggestions in this piece.
