Dieterich Buxtehude (±1637-1707): Cantate Domino

Buxtehude Captioned 150x150 Dieterich Buxtehude’s setting of the first four verses from Psalm 95 in the Vulgate (Psalm 96 in protestant bilbles) is a motet scored for SSB or SAB with accompaniment – Viola Da Gamba and organ. It’s a lovely piece that has strong Italianate influences. Close your eyes and you could easily imagine it to be from Monteverdi’s pen. Enjoy :-).
