Although not known for his vocal compositions, esteemed organist Dietrich Buxtehude penned an intricate collection of 120 pieces highlighted with expressive articulation. Paul Hillier leads the Theatre of Voices through breathtaking renditions of these lesser known 17th century works. The strings and organ heard on these primarily religious works add both vivid scenery and support. These astounding cantatas of Latin and Swedish text flourished with style and flair. One of the many outstanding compositions on the album is Missa alla brevi, written in the old style of the renaissance.

Reviews
"Paul Hillier and his Theatre of Voices have built a fine reputation singing Stockhausen, Pärt, Adams and Reich, but here breathe new life into this stimulating but neglected 17th-century repertoire." - Stephen Pritchard, Guardian
