That's the setting in which my statement was couched. = Please try to keep up.   >To listen to ANY of Buxtehude's orgelwerke as played by Harald Vogel on >one of the historical instruments that he uses for his 7-CD set is sheer >joy.<snip>   For awhile, at least. If one is studying Buxtehude (or anyone else, for that matter), fine. I remember listening to all 18 LPs of Bach's complete organ works by Kraft one time during a detailed study of Bach's compositional style, and going, "Jeez, I needa BREAK! Where's the Hindemith?? Messiean! ANYTHING!! I'll pass on the Glass, please...."   >If I were programming Buxtehude for a public recital, I would make sure >that the program notes<snip>   Fine, but go back up to my first paragraph....'nuff said.   >When David Dahl recently played the dedicatory recital at All Saints' >Episcopal Church in Las Vegas, he neither played down<schnippo al fine>   All well and good and fine. You've missed the context in which the statement was typed; Buxtehude is indeed required literature...in appropriate dosages! However, if your goal is to just have another bunch of other organists sitting around critiquing and no one else, by all means, go right ahead!   DeserTBoB
