Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck

Sweelinck, his sources and his influence is the name of the collection of organ music that is featured next time on In the Mode. Incredibly, no keyboard manuscripts of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck survive, but the good news is that the many young German organists who visited Amsterdam to study with Sweelinck held such a high opinion of their master’s work, that it was spread all over Europe by them. We’ll hear organist Bernard Winsemius perform. CD TITLE: Psalmi ad Vesperas (1694) PERFORMER: Houston Chamber Choir CD: MSR 1437
