Bach's visit to Buxtehude formed another white milestone in his career.
Buxtehude had thoughts of retiring, and was looking for a successor.
But much time passed before Handel profited by the examples of Buxtehude.
Buxtehude himself, in succeeding Tunder, had married his daughter.
The place was occupied by the renowned Buxtehude, who was so advanced in age that he was forced to look for a successor.
When he returned to Arnstadt, the spirit of Buxtehude was upon him.
Wilcox was listening to the Buxtehude when we shoved the door of his room open, and he had his head back and eyes closed.
Buxtehude avoided in his music the ornate and clustering polyphony which was really his mtier.
He accepted the invitation to play for the Buxtehude contingent.
He had been offered the post as successor to Buxtehude, and Buxtehude was the greatest organist of his time.
