An exploration of Buxtehude’s Preludium in C, with Mary Cobbold

Mary Cobbold, one of the RCO's Accredited Teachers, describes the life and reputation of Dietrich Buxtehude, and explores his use of rhetorical structures and devices, using the Preludium in C as an example. Of interest to all organists who include the works of Buxtehude in their repertoire, this film will be of particular interest to CRCO students for the current (2021/2022) examination period, where the works of Buxtehude are the set pieces for the CRCO Written Paper.   This film was first presented at the RCO's Winter Conference in February 2021.
