Buxtehude: the greatest German composer between Schütz and Bach. In 1680 the organist of the Marienkirche in Lübeck wrote a highly unusual cycle of cantatas based on a medieval Latin hym, Salve mundi salutare, which has since become a Classic of Baroque sacred music. This imaginative contemplation of the sufferings of Christ from feet (Ad pedes) to face (Ad faciem) - by way of the knees, the hands, the side, the breast and the heart -  has already been recorded once by harmonia mundi, back in 1990. Now you can admire the same performers in a film dating from 2005, naturally still conducted by René Jacobs!
