Dieterich Buxtehude - Abendmusik, a selection of cantatas.

Göteborg Baroque Arts Ensemble
Magnus Kjellson, organ, conductor

IMCD 070
Recorded at Örgryte nya kyrka, Göteborg, September 2000

Be prepared to duck when the trumpets and tympani enter full force in Schlagt, Künstler! die Pauken. This is a wedding cantata using a full choir and soloists. Their balance is impeccable and German diction is spot on...   ...I cannot recommend this release too highly for musicality, program and sound quality!

 ...I don't know if the ULSI technology you mentioned was utilised here likewise, but I found the sound to be marvellous; the ensemble and the room are really well-balanced. Indeed this contributes a lot to make this CD superior to many others of the same genre - too often recording engineers don't dare to give the room a chance to participate in the music-making. I really would look forward to more Buxtehude cantata recordings in the given constellation...
