Vox Luminis - Buxtehude: Abendmusiken - Presto Classical

Buxtehude’s solo-verse settings are definite highlights. Bass Sebastian Myrus’s ‘Trotz dem alten Drachen’ shifts nimbly between the spikily defiant and the self-assured...The story of Bach’s visit to Lübeck has been passed down the ages, and it’s wonderful finally to be able to hear for ourselves what all the fuss was about – pace The Proclaimers, these are definitely performances worth hiking three hundred miles to hear!
