Event description
The La Farge Ensemble performs Buxtehude’s oratorio Membra Jesu nostri patientis sanctissima (The Most Holy Limbs of Our Suffering Jesus)

About this Event

In observance of Good Friday, the La Farge Ensemble (composed of a select group of singers from the Trinity Choirs) and instrumentalists perform Dietrich Buxtehude’s rarely-heard 1680 oratorio Membra Jesu nostri patientis sanctissima (The Most Holy Limbs of Our Suffering Jesus. Composed of seven brief cantatas, the hour-long work integrates vivid texts dedicated to the wounded limbs of the crucified Christ: feet, knees, hands, sides, breast, heart, and face. The overall effect is a moving meditation serving to evoke empathy, compassion, and, finally, comfort.

Tickets ($20) are general admission.
