Notes & Reviews:
Buxtehude's cantata cycle, 'Membra Jesu Nostri', is a totally unique work. Based on texts from a Medieval Latin hymn, "Salve mundi salutare", the cycle contains seven cantatas, each dedicated to a different part of Christ's crucified body. Buxtehude plays cleverly with musical colors and textures, changing the mixture of voices and instruments to dramatic effect as the work develops.
"Inspired music matched by intensely heartfelt one-to-a-part performance." -BBC Music Magazine *****Notes & Reviews:
