Jan Sweelinck (1562-1621) was among the most famous organists of seventeenth century Europe and an influential composer in the Dutch and North German tradition. Bridging both Renaissance and Baroque styles, the Dutch composeris best remembered for the inventive, sparkling music he wrote for organ and other keyboard instruments. This remarkable treasury includes nearly all of Sweelinck’s brilliant keyboard works, most of which have survived only inwidely scattered seventeenth century manuscripts. In Sweelinck’s day, these were some of Europe’s most popular pieces for organ and keyboard. Nowadays, they retain every bit of their original intensity and vigour. Reproducedinthis authoritative complete-resource edition, they will be welcomed by serious keyboard artists, who will find them as praiseworthy today as they were when first known and played in Europe over three hundred years ago.
