Buxtehude: Cantatas for Passiontide

Sunday 25th March 2018, 8pm

St Michael and All Angels, Northcote Road, LONDON, E17 6PP

Palm-Sunday-concert-flyer-email-versionAmici Voices are thrilled to join St James’ Baroque for an evening of contemplation on Palm Sunday. The programme is centred around Buxtehude’s cycle of Cantatas Membra Jesu Nostri, a devotional exploration of the pain and suffering of Christ’s passion. Each cantata in the cycle addresses a different part of Jesus’ wounded body laying bear the need for a personal response to this suffering.

Alongside this large scale work, the joy of the resurrection is heard in Buxtehude’s solo cantata for Alto and Viola da Gamba: Jubilate Domino sung by mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston and played by Mark Caudle.

Tickets for this concert are available on the door for £12, (£6 concessions)
