About The Event

KorMalta will perform Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri Patientis Sanctissima (‘’The Most Holy Limbs of Our Suffering Jesus’’) accompanied by the Valletta International Baroque Ensemble. The piece is a contemplation of seven parts of Christ’s crucified body: his pierced feet, bent knees, bleeding hands, wounded side, revered breast, loving heart, and thorn crowned face. Combining vivid texts with intensely expressive music, they were, according to the title page, a personal act of piety where pain is felt through sounds, moments of total peace and abandonment.

Formation: Orchestral Ensemble, Vocal Ensemble (SSATB) and continuo

Soloist: Soprano I, Soprano II, Alto, Tenor, Bass
