Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri
March 15, 2020 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm
The Epiphany choir will join with some of Seattle’s most accomplished Baroque musicians to present Dietrich Buxtehude’s unique cantata cycle, which is based on a medieval Latin hymn. This masterpiece consists of seven small cantatas, each focusing on a different part of Christ’s crucified body; each cantata consists of a short instrumental sinfonia, a choral introduction, three solos, and a choral conclusion. The work is widely considered to be Buxtehude’s greatest composition.
