One of the Hamburg students of Sweelinck, Heinrich Scheidemann, was a passionate promoter of the music of Sweelinck and passed on his musical heritage to Johann Adam Reincken, who in turn had an important influence on Johann Sebastian Bach.

In the programme, the organists Jan Kleinbussink, Leo van Doeselaar and Gustav Leonhardt play works for the organ by Heinrich Scheidemann, Johann Adam Reincken, Johann Sebastian Bach and Sweelinck himself.
