In the church where Schnitger is buried, his largest two-manual instrument with 34 ranks, built in 1688, has been heard again in all its original glory since summer 2017. It goes without saying that this organ will be a part of the programme commemorating the 300th anniversary of his death when Lionel Meunier and Vox Luminis are joined by Hilger Kespohl to recall Buxtehude’s legendary »Evening Music« programmes in St Mary’s in Lübeck, viewed today as the first public concerts on German soil. Buxtehude valued Schnitger’s instruments and was involved in the planning and dedication of his organ in Lübeck’s cathedral. He will be represented by the cantata »Herzlich lieb hab ich dich, o Herr« and the lament »Mit Fried und Freud«. Christoph Bernhard, a pupil of Heinrich Schütz, was music director and cantor at the Johanneum in neighbouring Hamburg from 1664 to 1674. Johann Michael Bach, who was born in the same year as Schnitger, was the father of Maria Barbara, Johann Sebastian’s first wife, and his cantata »Christ lag in Todes Banden« brings the memorial programme to a conciliatory close.
