Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri

Passion Concert: Bach’s Cantata 4, Christ lag in Todesbanden, and the first Lutheran oratorio, Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri

1 April, 2017, 7:30pm
Zion Lutheran Church

alonso_cano_-_saint_john_the_evangelists_vision_of_jerusalem_detail_-_wga04004We offer Bach’s very first cantata, also on a song by Martin Luther, to continue our celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, along with a most beautiful and historically significant piece by Buxtehude. For Bach, this composer was paramount – he walked 200 miles each way to experience Buxtehude’s music at the cathedral in Lübeck and overstayed his leave to soak up more of the master’s knowledge and genius.

Also on the program: Heinrich Schütz’ Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz and Johann Christian Bach’s Ach, dass ich Wassers gnug hätte
