BUXTEHUDE, Diderik
b Helsingor, Denmark, 1637
d Lübeck, 9 May 1707, aged seventy

He studied organ with his father. In 1660 he was appointed organist at Helsingor, and in 1688 at the Marienkirche in Lubeck, a very lucrative post. It was to hear him play here that J. S. Bach made his famous 200-mile journey. He instigated a series of concerts in Lübeck, the tradition of which extended into the early nineteenth century. One condition of the appointment to the Marienkirche was that the newcomer should marry his predecessor's daughter; this Buxtehude did, and when he retired in 1703 he enforced the same conditions on his successors. One of the applicants was Handel - who refused.
