This recording offers an unusual selection of Dietrich Buxtehude’s vocal music performed by 2010 Grammy® Award winning ensemble Theatre of Voices conducted by Paul Hillier. Among these rarely heard works with texts in Swedish and Latin, we find cantatas in the form of virtuoso concertos, as well as arias and chorale settings and Buxtehude’s only work in the stile antico, the Missa alla brevis.

A natural choice of recording venue for Hillier and his team was St. Mary’s Church in Elsinore where Buxtehude was employed as an organist in 1660-68. Bine Bryndorf is the guest organist and plays the authentic (restored) ‘Buxtehude organ’.

Classic FM Magazine

February 2011


“Singing one-to-a-part, they produce splendidly full tone...These fine cantatas show that Buxtehude was much more than just a predecessor of Bach. The performances are both spirited and spiritual, and there's a bonus in two substantial pieces for organ.”

Gramophone Magazine

March 2011

“The Theatre of Voices convey a compelling atmosphere of drama, commitment and plangent sonorities in Buxtehude's setting of Pangue lingua gloriosi...and the introductory sonata to the psalm Ecce nunc benedicite is played with refined joyfulness.”

International Record Review

December 2010

“The ability the Theatre of Voices personnel have of blending themselves into a cogent chamber choir...is possibly their most notable attribute...With immaculate clarity of line, with a perfect balance between instruments and voices and with superlative shaping of the individual lines, Hillier producers some thoroughly invigorating and totally absorbing accounts”

The Observer

24th October 2010

“[Theatre of Voices] breathe new life into this stimulating but neglected 17th-century repertoire, aided by the splendidly crisp TOV band. Soprano Else Torp, countertenor William Purefoy and bass Jakob Bloch Jespersen shine among the singers. Highly recommended.”
