"I got this as I was unhappy with the Peters Buxtehude - what do people think? Thanks.( Other composers there too of course)"

 

Save up and buy Broude/Belotti. Its the only Buxtehude text that doesn't limit you to subjective editorial decisions about use of pedal etc, and provides you all the information for the sources to help you make good decisions about the text. The free works have been available for a decade now I think, does anyone know if the chorale-based works are finally ready?

Thanks. I tried to Google (dread wird!) this but got no joy. Who publishes it?

Looking at the typeface, my guess is that it could be Seiffert's 1903 revision and enlargement of Spitta's 19th century edition. It might also explain why it's also now in the public domain. With many modern, more authoritative editions available though, I would not recommend it.

 

If you're playing Buxtehude's organ music, Hedar's 1952 edition (Hansen) has done sterling service, but has been superseded by the two editions by Beckmann (Breitkopf & Härtel); Albrecht (Bärenreiter); and Belotti mentioned above. Keller's edition (Peters) is simply not highly regarded by organists with authority in musical scholarship.

The free works are listed at EUR 215.00 (expensive, but worth the investment, believe me). The chorale based works are still listed as 'in preparation'.

 

I purchased mine from the Organ Historical Society last year for USD 215 plus postage. In Australian dollars, my currency, that's less than 2/3 of the EUR 215 price. I've mentioned this society before, but for those that missed the link, here it is again.

The US dollar has lost so much value in the last few months against most currencies, it is worth a browse!

 

It is the edition to purchase for those serious about their Buxtehude.
