Composer: Buxtehude, Dieterich
Sample Producer: OrganArt Media
Sample Set: 2012 Metzler, Poblet Abbey (Surround), Spain
Software: Hauptwerk VIII
Genre: Baroque
Many of Buxtehude’s preludes have five sections in which the alternation of free and contrapuntal passages guarantees the desired varietas. A similar formal pattern – with the addition of an interlude before the first fugue as well – is found in the Praeludium in G minor, BuxWV 148. Here the finale consists of a chaconne with a bass motif that Henry Purcell also used in his opera Dido and Aeneas. This does not prove that Buxtehude knew Purcell’s music, however, but merely shows how popular chaconne-based compositions were all over Europe at this period.

I recorded this piece on the (beta test) surround version of the Metzler organ of Poblet. It's a perfect organ to use various small and big plenums for this piece.
