Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1638-1707)

Ich habe Lust abzuscheiden, BuxWV 47


Ich habe Lust abzuscheiden

Spann aus, spann aus, ach frommer Gott

Dann was ist doch die schnöde Welt

Wie einer, welcher auf dem Meer

So spann doch aus, ach frommer Gott

Trio Sonata in F Major


Dieterich Buxtehude

Jesu dulcis memoria, BuxWV 56

Jesu dulcis memoria

Nil canitur suavius

Jesu, spes poenitentibus

Jesu, dulcedo cordium

Nex lingua valet dicere

Jesu, rex admirabilis

Mane nobiscum, Domine

Amor Jesu dulcissimus

Jesu dulcis memoria


George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Passacaglia, from Trio Sonata in G Major, Op. 5, No. 4


Dieterich Buxtehude

Cantate domino, BuxWV 12

Cantate Domino canticum novum

Cantate Domino, et benedicite nomini ejus

In omnibus populis mirabilia ejus

Quoniam magnus Dominus et laudabilis nimis

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto




Dietrich Buxtehude

Ich bin eine Blume zu Saron, BuxWV 45

Ich bin eine Blume zu Saron

Wie eine Rose in den Dornen

Ich sitze unter dem Schatten

Herr, wenn ich nur dich hab, BuxWV 38

Unter deinem Schirmen

Trotz dem alten Drachen

Weg mit allen Schätzen

Gute Nacht, o Wesen

Weicht, ihr Trauergeister
