Germany: Buxtehude Anniversary

This stamp was issued in 1987 to mark the 350th anniversary of the birth of Dietrich Buxtehude. Buxtehude is a well-recognized name amongst organists, if not too many other musicians. His work is a prelude to the organ compositions of Bach. Scott 1507 features an abstract organ facade and the composer's signature.
