    TDC: Just an update in case you were waiting. I didn't forget the diagram--I confused my topics. I've been reading several other books and articles re/ the history of the "oratiorio"--particularly it's early history: what a confusing, difficult topic! (I mixed that up with my reading re/ Buxtehude and other influences on Bach's cantatas.) No diagram of the history of the oratorio will be forthcoming anytime soon.

    No worries.

    Lassus being the foundation of German Baroque was an interesting suggestion...not sure if it is correct, but I listened to some Lassus yesterday and found it enjoyable.

    I will say to my ears Schütz and Buxtehude sound like the foundation of the North German Baroque sound, culminating in the music of J.S. Bach.

    I like what (very little) I've heard of Buxtehude's compositions. On an unrelated note, I've recently discovered the lautenwerk (lute-harpsichord) and am obsessed with its sound. Are there any recordings of Buxtehude's keyboard works performed on the lautenwerk? Is that even a HIP thing to do? I don't know whether that instrument was invented before or after his time. But I'm trying to kill two birds with one stone for my library

    Noit that I know of, but I could well believe that on a good lute harpsichord Buxtehude's suites etc could sound good, there's a recording of The Goldberg Variations suites on a lautenwerk by Wolfgang Rubsam, and that sounds good -- The Goldberg Variations are similar to Buxtehude's La Capricciosa.

    Funny that you mention that. I'm a big fan of the Goldberg Variations and have actually for the past couple days been seeking out Rübsam's recent recording of it. I just listened to Glenn Gould's 1955 recording about an hour ago (obviously the complete other side of the spectrum from something like Rübsam's, but I am not one to mind the anachronism and I appreciate both styles). Anyway, I love what I've heard from Rübsam's Goldberg, he plays it like a Japanese lullaby. I just found it on Itunes for 8 bucks, may have to pull the trigger.

    But yes, hearing snippets of Rübsam playing Goldberg is what sparked my recent interest in this instrument. Obviously Buxtehude is not as widely recorded in as many different traditions as is Bach, but I'll look out for anything of his played on the lautenwerk if such a thing exists.

    I have an obsession with the lute-harpsichord as well.

    Here's Gergely Sárközy doing Bach BWV 997 :

    And a guy who builds some crazy good instruments along that line :
