Dietrich Buxtehude & Bach Discussions. Buxtehude Solo Organ Works. Donald Satz wrote (June 25, 2001): I'm trying to get a handle on the recordings devoted to Buxtehude solo organ compositions. There don't seem to be very many of them, and this is what I've developed so far: Rene Saorgin - 5 volume set on Harmonia Mundi. Buxtehude's organ music was so excellent that he was very well-known during his lifetime, and, listening to this recording, one can immediately hear why. His music stands at the crossroads of traditional German music and the development of new styles imported from France and Italy. His organ music covers all possible forms for the instrument, and this disc includes several preludes, chorales and two Magnificats. This work is, quite simply, one of the high points of baroque harpsichord music. This recording is perhaps the most essential of the three discs so far released in this series.

Album · 1967 · 28 Songs. Intonation for Organ on the 1st tone. 2. Sacrae symphoniae, Book 1: Plaudite, psallite, iubilate Deo omnis terra (Motet in 12 parts for three choirs). E. Power Biggs, Vittorio Negri, The Gregg Smith Singers & The Texas Boys Choir of Fort Worth. Intonation for Organ.

Biggs was one of the most influential figures in the American Musical world during the middle decades of the twentieth century. His was a household name as his Sunday morning radio broadcasts brought fine organ music of all periods to American listeners - this program alone brought the sound of organ music, particularly that of the Baroque, to an unprecedented large audience. Biggs' inexhaustible energy as a performer was instrumental to the popularization of both the organ and Baroque music, and his activities extended well beyond these broadcasts. He toured and recorded widely, playing.

His recordings of Bach and Buxtehude and even Scott Joplin were heard at cocktail parties, even blared from the windows of 1960s college dormitories. This reissue from the European budget outfit Berlin Classics has the faults common to the quickie repackagings of its ilk - the sound transfers but thinly from the 1970 LP; there is no hint as to the origin of that LP (other than that it was apparently made in West Germany and featured Biggs' rarely encountered first name, Edward); there are no notes whatsoever; and the whole program comes in at an ungenerous 40 minutes plus. It has to do with the way he hangs back at the beginnings of the phrases in the thinner iterations of the passacaglia pattern, reserving straight-ahead motion for the points where the music builds, and tying things together by just slightly pushing the tempo as the work proceeds.
