Vincent Lübeck’s few organ works were transmitted only in copies that were written chiefly in letter tablature, and that stem mostly from Lübeck’s circle of students, thus from the collections of Hamburg’s Nicolaikirche. Just as with the previous editions of Bruhns (EB 8663), Scheidt (EB 8565-67) and Sweelinck (EB 8741-44), this new edition by Harald Vogel is a “practical source-based edition” that seeks to make the information content of the sources accessible to present-day users and – to the extent that this is feasible in modern-day practice – to remain as close as possible to the original notation. In order to lead the user closer to the original form, Vogel eschews editorial additions through analogical formations. The editor’s detailed comments refer not only to the extant collection of works, but also – in the text “The Organs and Their Tunings” – to the instruments on which the composer exercised his mastery in Flensburg, Stade and Hamburg.
