No words are adequate to describe this incredible recording. Often with complete works, a particular track rises above all others. But not here, each piece is faultless. Harald Vogel is the master of Buxtehude's organ works. His playing is very rich in colour and warmth, so expressive without being harsh. The North German Organs featured have that softness in voice, which is similar to English organs.

Passage of time together with the vicissitudes of history have necessitated restoration of these organs. But one organ basically remains extant, as it was in Buxtehude's time and maybe he played it? It reposes in the St. Jakobi Church Lubeck. The acoustics of this church befits this organ and on disc 1, when you hear Vogel play BuxVW 138/199/212/213/192/185/142 and BuxVW 178 is more or less the same sound, that the church goers would have heard over 320 years ago. In a certain sense, when you listen to these tracks, you are transported back in time!

An interesting perspective is, that to fully appreciate J.S. Bach's organs works, it is imperative to first listen to Buxtehude. Then you can see what the former wished for, and where he is coming from, when he composed his wonderful oeuvre for Organ.

To fully understand this recording, it is necessary to read the liner notes, which are comprehensive. It is impossible to be critical of Vogel's playing, because where Buxtehude is concerned, Harald Vogel shall be the benchmark. Credit must also be awarded to MDG for an impeccable and technically correct recording. This is one of the finest, which I have ever listened to.

This is the most authoratative edition of Buxtehude's works for organ. As an organist under instruction I have come to respect the works of this composer as much as those of Bach. If you are an organist you will find these recordings answer your questions regarding registration, tempo and ornamentation; if you are not you will enjoy this most wonderful and exciting organ music!

H Vogel's complete organ works are an excellent recording. All those who are interested in organ music would benefit from having this recording in their collection. Vogel has intersting registrations for the pieces which will insipre players.

Both a Musician and a Scholar 6 July 2013
By Edward Greene - Published on Amazon.com

A couple of generations ago, the Three B's were Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. But for most of my adult life the Three B's have been Byrd, Buxtehude, and Bach. I already had a perfectly good set of the complete organ music of Buxtehude, but what sold me on this one was learning that the performer was both a scholar and a teacher, and the music was played on instruments of Buxtehude's time -- including the splendid organ at the Jacobikirche in Hamburg. I have not been disappointed. The music is glorious and Vogel's registrations are well thought out and often surprising. He seems especially fond of 4-foot flutes and principals as solo stops. This gives some pieces a sprightly -- even playful -- quality that they would never have in a more somber registration. There are serious and scholarly discussions of the music in the program notes (I confess I have not got around to reading them all yet) and specifications of all the organs and the registrations used in playing. What does a Quintadena really sound like? Now I know.
