KorMalta together with VIBE shed light once again on the works of Danish/German composer Dietrich Buxtehude as part of the Baroque Festival. Buxtehude’s work offers a rare dramatic power which enchanted both G.F. Handel and J.S. Bach. Buxtehude’s cantata cycle, Membra Jesu Nostri, is a unique work based on texts from a mediaeval Latin hymn, ‘Salve mundi salutare’. The cycle contains seven cantatas each dedicated to a different part of Christ’s crucified body.
Presented in collaboration with ViBE - Valletta Baroque Ensemble & Festivals Malta
