Dieterich Buxtehude: Nun danket alle Gott

Dieterich Buxtehude

Nun danket alle Gott

BuxWV 79


This work has survived in an autograph, unfortunately undated, preserved in the Düben Collection. The cantata is a setting of Ecclesiasticus 50, verses 24–26. This composition is one of the most richly scored vocal compositions of Buxtehude. A ritornello, which includes a fanfare of trumpets, and a longer vocal section based on “Nun danket alle Gott” create the work’s structure. In Nun danket alle Gott Buxtehude indicated in detail, in at least one instance, the use of an a cappella entrance of the choir. If the sections without instrumental accompaniment are sung by soloists, the choir is added in the tutti passages.
