Buxtehude Membra Jesu Nostri: London

20 February 2017 7.30pm Wigmore Hall £15 - £60

For some people, the cyclic title of these cantatas by Buxtehude might conjure up a rather morbid picture. However, this meditation on the Passion, in which each of the seven cantatas contemplates parts of Christ’s body on the cross (feet, knees, hands, side, breast, heart and head), is full of beauty, hope and invention.
