Magnificat primi toni, BuxWV204
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Chorale Fantasia on ‘Magnificat primi toni’, BuxWV204, falls into two sections, the first a lively double fugue, the second an austerely beautiful double fugue in the vocal style (‘stile antico’) associated with such sixteenth-century composers as Palestrina (and in its use of invertible counterpoint illustrating the sophistication Buxtehude’s technique was capable of embracing).
