In Search Of Equanimity

Three minutes with the Accentus Insula Orchestra as they perform a little ditty by Dieterich Buxtehude, (1639-1707)  entitled Alleluia.

While most of us will recognize some of the works of JS Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and lest we forget, Tchaikovsky, the name Buxtehude isn’t as widely known.  The Danish born organist and composer was however,  one of the most influential composers of the Baroque period (early 18th century).   Indeed, he was a mentor and teacher of JS Bach.

His catalog is vast and I spend most of my days listening to  Buxtehude on IDAGIO at my desk.

Great music calms the savage beast.
