Ludwig Busbetzky (Lovies Busbetsky ; Busbet) was an Estonian organist and composer during the 17th century. Coming from a family of musicians, Busbetzky studied with Dieterich Buxtehude in Lübeck around 1680.[1]

From 1687 to 1699 Busbetzky was the organist at the German church in Narva.[2]

Only two of his compositions are known to have survived, both of which have been previously attributed to Buxtehude.

  • Erbarm dich mein ô Herre Gott for soprano, alto, tenor, bass, 2 violins, 2 violas, bassoon or violone, and continuo.[3]
  • Laudate Dominum for soprano, 2 violins, bassoon or violone, and continuo.[4]
