Victimae Pascali - BuxWV ???


Hello,

I am looking for the score or perhaps even the BuxWV number of this prelude discussed here: https://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/16342. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

God Bless

I can assure you Buxtehude wrote no organ piece on 'Christ lag in Todesbanden' (same tune), at least not one that survived. The same counts for his vocal works, no works are known on Christ lag. So it's also not possible that it is a transcription for organ.

The recording you refer to doesn't even sound like Buxtehude (to me at least). There are some other organo pleno settings on this hymn, for example by Buttstett and Homilius. Böhm's two settings on Christ lag are also worth looking into (the closest you will get for a North German signature on this hymn).

I agree; not Buxtehude sounding at all; sounds from a later period.

I recieved an email with the score. The generous provider has it titled ‘Fuga su Victimae Paschali’ and the music is under a heading ‘Prelude’ with the little piece and a short verset. According to the score, it is indeed by D. Buxtuhude.

In this case: never trust a score which couples Buxtehude to a piece he never wrote on a Catholic hymn he probably never used, because Buxtehude was Lutheran.
But maybe Buxtehude had a nephew which name was BuxtUhude ;)

Occasional wrong attributions are a given in music publications, alas. For example, the 8 little P&F, or some works by Johann Praetorius, formerly attributed to Sweelinck, etc., etc.

Auke Jongbloed (Partitura Organum) published a prelude on «Christ lag in Todesbanden» by Nicolaus Vetter that is very similar to that you refer to:

Vetter makes a lot more sense than Buxtehude with this piece.
