2.) Music

Ton Koopman has recorded the complete works by Buxtehude. He has made available sheet music from his productions to all friends of Buxtehude. Many thanks to him!
The ZIP folders contain compressed PDF documents.
Some cantatas come without a score and maybe without the vocal parts (like BuxWV 1).
Please refer to the old Buxtehude Gesamtausgabe / Complete Works Edition!
Addendum 2017: We are looking forward to make those missing parts available. Regarding the Complete Works Edition, the Broude Publishers have made good progress meanwhile, so Buxtehude's music will again be available to libraries in modern print.
