Buxtehude’s ‘Membra Jesu Nostri’
Saturday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m.
Trillium Lutheran Church, 22 Willow Street, Waterloo, ON
Membra Jesu Nostri is a gorgeous work of seven cantatas, each representing a part of Christ’s crucified body. Six of the cantatas are performed with violins and continuo but the cantata representing Christ’s heart is performed with a viol consort. The change in tone colour when the viols start playing is breathtaking, and in our previous performances this has often inspired an ‘ahh’ from the audience. This performance will be on period instruments.
