Dieterich Buxtehude's Missa Brevis Sung by Collegium Vocale Seoul

I first heard the name Dieterich Buxtehude (1637-1707), and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1524-1594) for that matter, in a most unlikely source: John Steinbeck's non-fiction classic, The Log from the Sea of Cortez, in which bohemian marine biologist Ed Ricketts, the model for the character "Doc" in Cannery Row, cites both composers, along with Johann Sebastian Bach, as exemplars of his philosophy of "Breaking Through."
