Dieterich Buxtehude’s sacred concerto Gen Himmel zu dem Vater mein is the setting of a chorale text. Two instrumental parts wind around a cantus firmus sung by the soprano above a thorough-bass. The viola da gamba part, as well as that of the violin, has a concertante-like character, which emphasizes the piece’s similarity to Buxtehude’s well-known cantata Jubilate Domino.
