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 Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu nostri—a seven-part cycle of Passion cantatas written to texts from a medieval poem offering a mystical meditation of Christ on the cross—alongside intensely expressive sacred motets by Schütz and Buxtehude.

“Intelligently conceived, expertly performed.”
