width="200"Dieterich Buxtehude (?)

Nun freut euch, lieben Christen gmein [Erstveröffentlichung / first edition]

Herausgegeben von / Edited by Pieter Dirksen

Wiesbaden: Breitkopf & Härtel, 2007 (Edition Breitkopf 8643)
28 pages

This edition is dedicated to Gustav Leonhardt. It was presented to him during a concert in the Waalse Kerk Amsterdam on 9 Mai 2007, the 300th day of Buxtehude's demise.

The first edition of an important anonymously transmitted North German chorale fantasia from c.1660. As discussed at length in the preface, the piece clearly stems from the Scheidemann circle, and all features point in the direction of none other than the young Dieterich Buxtehude as its most likely author, thus filling an important gap in our knowledge of his organ music.
