Dieterich Buxtehude (Born c. 1637 – Died 9 May 1707) was a German-Danish organist, lutenist and a highly respected composer of the Baroque period. His organ works comprise a central part of the standard organ repertoire and are frequently performed at recitals and church services. He wrote in a wide variety of vocal and instrumental idioms, and his style strongly influenced many composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach and Gustav Mahler. He was an organist, first in Helsingborg (1657-1658), then at Elsinore (Helsingør) (1660-1668), and last from 1668 at the Marienkirche in Lübeck, where he succeeded Franz Tunder.
