More affektenlehre in buxtehude

A very nice speculative “Affektenlehre” analysis by this lady of the Prelude and Fugue(s) in G Minor by Dietrich Buxtehude

Wonderful analysis, and it brings home how this level of musical communication and abstraction was so much higher in that era. I got a taste of Buxtehude after many years of listening to only Bach organ works. It’s like discovering a band that influenced your favourite artist and uncovering a whole new treasure!
