Composer: Buxtehude, Dieterich
Sample Producer: Pipeloops
Sample Set: G. Silbermann Organ, Grosshartmannsdorf
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
This is the most famous of the three ground bass pieces by Buxtehude, and shows the following innovation: the theme in the pedal changes keys 3 times: d minor, F Major, a minor, and back to d minor, with clear modulations between each. And at times it's heartbreakingly lovely. [5:48] MIDI Files available.
Performance: MIDI
Recorded in: Stereo
