Notes & Reviews:

"Assuming [the oratorio is] the real McCoy, it represents a major, heretofore unknown vocal work by this great North German composer that all baroque fans will definitely want to hear. Although its origins are sketchy, it may well have been written for the Abendmusiken (Evening Music) series of public concerts that Buxtehude organized and promoted at his church, the Marienkirche in Lubeck. It survived only as a set of incomplete parts, but thanks to some extensive scholarly research and realization work by Koopman, we now have his very impressive reconstruction of it premiered here. This is like no other Buxtehude you've ever heard before, because it's very lyrical with passages that are quite operatic." -Classical Lost&Found
