Choir of St. Luke in the Fields, directed by David Shuler, with Sonnambula Viol Consort and an ensemble of period instruments

This concert of music for the Easter season will feature Dieterich Buxtehude’s most expansive work, "Membra Jesu Nostri", a cycle of seven cantatas forming a meditation on the Passion. The work, dating from 1680, is a tour de force assimilating all of Buxtehude’s vocal compositional styles including concerto-motets, chorale settings, varied strophic arias, as well as vocal concertos employing all the textural and tonal developments of the late seventeenth century. "The Seven Last Words" by Heinrich Schütz and other seventeenth-century masterpieces will complete the program. Pre-concert lecture at 7 PM.
