Music For A Peaceful Morning

Getting the idea from one of my buddies in Ohio.

Dietrich Buxtehude (c1637-1707) was one of the most important North German composers of keyboard music before J.S. Bach, whom his works had a decidedly big influence on. His trio sonatas are of the Northern German instrumentation of violin, viola da gamba, and continuo. They are written in the Stylus Fantasticus style, within free improvisatory passages, juxtaposed with fugal or ostinato sections.
