Catalogue Number: 08J018
Reference: 777 197
Description: Arrogance, Luxury, Pride, The Good Soul, The Bad Soul, The Heavenly Voice... this recording is of an anonymous Stockholm manuscript which is likely to be what's left of Buxtehude's allegorical 1682 Abendmusik (none of the Abendmusiken have been preserved with proof of Buxtehude's authorship), attributed to him on the basis of subject matter and style. A little over half of the manuscript is recorded here (78 minutes), with pietistic ornateness being sacrificed for the dramatic heart of the work. German-English texts. Ulrike Hofbauer, Monika Mauch, Margret Hunter (sopranos), Harry van der Kamp (bass), Henning Voss (alto), Hans-Jörg Mammel (tenor), Weser-Renaissance Bremen; Manfred Cordes.
