Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri

| TENEbrae series
presented by Trinity Wall Street

Translated as "The Limbs of our Jesus," Buxtehude's monumental seven part cantata cycle is known as the first Lutheran oratorio and was dedicated to Gustaf Düben, a Swedish organist and composer. The seven parts are divided into cantatas that address different parts of Christ's crucified body: feet, knees, hands, side, breast, heart and head. In addition to the use of full forces, there are plentiful solo and trio passages throughout the cantatas, as is quintessential of Buxtehude's cantata writing.
