Membra Jesu Nostri, seven cantatas for the "Abendmusiken"

Cantus Cölln, Konrad Junghänel
    • Apple Music

    The Passion according to Buxtehude. It was in 1680 that the organist of the Marienkirche of Lubeck wrote this highly unusual work for performance in the setting of his Abendmusiken (‘Evening Concerts’). In the course of this cycle of cantatas, the imaginary observer of Christ’s sufferings gradually directs his gaze upwards, from the feet (cantata no.1, Ad pedes) to the face (cantata no.7: Ad faciem). A classic of German Baroque sacred music.
    This title was released for the first time in 2006.
