Buxtehude – danske/svenske kantater

Holmens Kirke, Copenhagen
Wednesday, Feb 10, 2010 at 7.30pm

(see English below)

Størstedelen af Diderik Buxtehudes produktion var på tysk og latin, men her har vi fundet et par sjældne eksempler på hans brug af modersmålet. Diderik Hansen Buxtehude blev født ca. 1637 i Helsingborg og flyttede som barn med sine forældre til Helsingør, hvor hans far var organist i Sct Olai Kirke.
Som ganske ung fik Buxtehude stilling som organist i Mariakirken i Helsingborg og senere organistembedet i Sct Mariæ Kirke tilbage i Helsingør.
Han flyttede i 1668 til Lübeck, hvor han boede og arbejdede frem til sin død i 1707. Især hans ’Abendmusik’ – aftenkoncerter – var vidt berømt, og Bach vandrede på tværs af det halve Tyskland for at høre den store mester.

Most of Diderik Buxtehude’s known vocal works are settings of German or Latin texts, but for this programme we have found a couple of rare examples of his use of his native language. He was born ca. 1637 in Helsingborg (now Sweden) and as a child he moved with his parents just across the water to Helsingør (Denmark) where his father was organist in Sct Olai Church.
As a young man, Buxtehude became organist in Maria Church in Helsingborg, and later, he moved back to Helsingør to become organist in Sct Mariae Church here.
In 1668 he took up the position in Maria Church in Lübeck where he lived and worked until his death in 1707. Especially his ‘Abendmusik’ – evening concert series – was very famous, and made Bach walk half way across Germany the hear the master.
