Buxtehude: Danish and Swedish Cantatas
SACD released on Dacapo Records
A teaser for the CD Scandanvian Cantatas with works by Dietrich Buxtehude. This recording offers an unusual selection of Buxtehude's vocal music performed by Theatre of Voices, conducted by Paul Hillier. Among these rarely heard works with texts in Swedish and Latin, we find cantatas in the form of virtuoso concertos, as well as arias and chorale settings and Buxtehude's only work in the stile antico, the Missa alla brevis.
