Septem Verba & Membra Jesu Nostri: Music of Buxtehude and Schütz

Sébastien Daucé and Ensemble Correspondances are renowned for recordings and performances of Baroque masterpieces that merge passion and elegance. They return to BEMF for the final concert of our 2021–2022 Season with a program showcasing two unique approaches to the Passion story from 17th-century Germany. Buxtehude’s seven-part cycle of Passion cantatas, Membra Jesu nostri, is written to texts from a medieval poem offering a mystical meditation of Christ on the cross. Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stund by Schütz focuses on the seven words of Christ on the cross with intense expressivity and diverse stylistic inspirations.
