This CD is a must for Buxtehude fans, as it contains five works not currently available on CD. Arcadia is a new ensemble formed in Melbourne to explore early vocal works. This is a collection of Italian-style sacred motets or cantatas, settings of texts from the Bible, Lutheran hymns and devotional poetry, for solo, duo and trio vocalists with instrumental accompaniment. Arcadia sounds superb in this recording made in the Chapel of the Carmelite Monastery in Kew, Melbourne. If you thought Buxtehude wrote only organ music, this CD will change your mind.


Dietrich Buxtehude Cantatas:

Canite Jesu nostro
Mein Herz ist bereit
Salve, Jesu, patris gnate unigenite
Motetto: Cantate Domino
Fürchtet euch nicht
Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe
Ich bin eine Blume zu Saron
In dulci jubilo
