O clemens, o mitis, o coelestis Pater is one of Buxtehude's most beautiful and intimate vocal works for a relatively small formation. It is a sacred concerto for soprano solo and an instrumental ensemble which is best made up of instruments of the viola da gamba family. The string parts however can also be played by a modern string quartet. The text is based on Luke 15 and various Psalm verses.
