Buxtehude: Membra Jesu NostriSampson, Crabtree, Blaze, Gilchrist, Birchall

Buxtehude’s cantata cycle Membra Jesu Nostri is a unique work. Based on words from a mediaeval Latin hymn, ‘Salve mundi salutare’, the cycle comprises seven cantatas, each dedicated to a different part of Christ’s crucified body. The texts are based on the concept of an observer contemplating Christ’s body on the cross, starting with the feet and moving up to the knees, hands, side, breast, heart, and finally head. Buxtehude plays cleverly with musical colours and textures and changes the mixture of voices and instruments to dramatic effect as the work develops.
