Dieterich Buxtehude

For God, so loved the world

Cantata

BuxWV 5

Description

Buxtehude's numerous vocal compositions which was written for performance in the Lübeck Marienkirche, are stylistically quite varied. The cantata "Also hat Gott die Welt geliebet" is a concerto for solo soprano, with a text taken from the Gospel of St. John. The text employs the principle of dialog as a musical competition between individual instruments or between instruments and the voice, with the inclusion of virtuoso passages.

Reviews

Dietrich Buxtehudes Solokantaten stammen aus der Lübecker Tabulatur A 373, die beide mit einer Sinfonia beginnen und in der Folge die vom Basso continuo begleiteten Solopartien den instrumentalen Einwürfen gegenüberstellt. Großartige Aufgaben für die Sopransolistin!
