Winsemius's [...] someone relaxed and happy to be making music. [...]

Exactly my impression, too.
Heard him live once, in August 2014: one hour+ of musical joy, which lasted in my head for at least a week. :)

Just to enjoy Winsemius's enjoyment in making music: playing (a.o.) Buxtehude's Praeludium in G minor BuxWV 163, Schonat/Duyschot/Hagerbeer organ of the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam, NL. Audience recording, during Festival Hemelse Klanken, summer 2016.

Fabulous, thrilling in the Bux. He can somehow play fast without making it just bravura, -- like Schoonbroodt but I find myself more moved by Winsemius, for some reason I can't explain. Winsemius and Asperen on NM were the two people who made me hear the greatness of Sweelinck for the first time. he must work at Amsterdam New Church I suppose, I need to keep a look out for concerts by him, I fancy a trip to Amsterdam. I assume I've missed this one, I can't see a date

It's most probably referring to this concert (august 2014):

Here are 2 concerts by (a.o.) Winsemius in the next 2 weeks, in the Nieuwe Kerk of Amsterdam:

Wolfgang Rübsam´s  Buxtehude recordings from the early 1980es [...]



https://www.wolfgangrubsam.com/buxtehude

Maybe this has been asked before somewhere, but does anyone know if this downloadable Buxtehude by Rübsam is his 1980s cycle (originally issued by Bellaphon)?

This is just the Belaphon.

Well much as I'd like to be in Amsterdam for Christmas, it's not going to happen. (I used to have a "tradition" of going to Amsterdam for New Year, years ago, staying in some really cheap but safe youth hostels in the centre, you can imagine, great fun when you're 20.)

As Mandryka points out, these recordings are the Bellaphone set. I understand from Rübsam, that he grouped the recordings in this way to save space (the Bellaphon set takes 9 CDs with short playing time). There was no talking about remastering.
The interpretations make a rather "modern" impression making use of a number of medium sized neo-baroque Metzler organs tuned in equal temperament. The interest rests upon his forward-looking phrasing and agogics. One of my great wishes is, that he re-records the Buxtehude set on historical instruments.

I must be confused. ;)

Anyway: I have the Bellaphon recordings, so there's no reason for another purchase.

Plenty of 80 year olds have fun, as far as I can see. It's 90 when I think the fun starts to stop - maybe I'm wrong.

I'm still planning to hit the dancefloor on some good baroque move on my 100th birthday.
Though Rübsam might cause that rare condition called irregular hips. ;)

Ah, now I'm beginning to understand BuxWV 210 better. It's chorale based, with each section corresponding to a verse in the chorale. So what appeared in other performances to be sudden mood changes is revealed here to be a dialogue between singer and organist, because he has a choir boy, a very talented choir boy, singing. Very valuable achievement here from Davidsson IMO.

I think this is the very talented choir boy:

I was wondering that as I typed the post. Thanks.

Quote
Anna Jobrant is a singer devoted to Early Music, which suits her voice and appeals to her soul. The Academy of Music and Drama at the University of Gothenburg was the venue for her training; she has a degree in Music Education and then completed the Postgraduate Diploma Programme. While participating in the Diploma Programme, she was lucky to cross paths with the flautist Manuela Wiesler and the fantastic singer Emma Kirkby. Both of these accomplished musicians have in different, and decidedly important, ways inspired and guided Anna as an artist.

Most of Anna’s performances involve solos in oratorios, or solo concerts, but she also have a passion for vocal ensembles, which has led her to sing with ensembles such as Göteborg Baroque and Swedish Harmony of Voices among others.

The dynamic shadings remind me more of Romantic practice than the phrasing.
’They do indeed.  I find myself wondering how such obvious dynamic shadings were accomplished on that instrument. Close microphoning, an atypical instrument or both?
I’m also amazed the dynamics survived Youtube’s usual compression.
