Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dieterich Buxtehude's concert series, called Abendmusiken, achieved fame far beyond the walls of Lubeck, such that Bach timed his famous trip in the fall of 1705 to coincide with this yearly event, which took place from four to five o'clock on the last two Sundays of Trinity and the second, third, and fourth Sundays of Advent. Buxtehude's presentations normally consisted of five-part oratorios, and with one possible exception they are all lost. In the year 1700, however, he departed from his normal practice and instead presented five programs of unrelated works for voices with instruments. At the turn of another new millennium, Intim presents here a Lubeck Abendmusik program, following Buxtehude's example from the year 1700 with a mixed Read more program of varied works for voices and instruments, including a large choral setting. The singers and instrumentalists for Buxtehude's Abendmusik concerts performed from six balconies surrounding the large organ at the west end of the church, and the performers for this recording have been similarly placed in balconies surrounding the large North German Baroque Organ. None of the extant librettos of Buxtehude's Abendmusiken mention the playing of solo organ music, but the Abendmusiken always followed the afternoon vesper service in the church, and it seems quite likely that he might have played the organ in the interim between vespers and the concert.
