Format: COMPACT DISC
Ensemble Marc'Antonio Ingegneri, Cremona; Coro Marc'Antonio Ingegneri, Cremona; Bissolati, Vatio
The Ensemble and Choir Marc’Antonio Ingegneri of Cremona conducted by Vatio Bissolati propose an interesting and inspired live performance of Membra Jesu Nostri BuxWV 75, a cycle of seven cantatas composed by Dietrich Buxtehude in 1680, known as the first Lutheran oratorio. The feet, knees, hands, side, chest, heart and face of the crucified Christ are interpreted allegorically in each of the seven cantatas, that follow the scheme “instrumental introduction (Sonata) – choral movement with biblical texts (Concerto) – vocal solo (aria) – repetition of the choral movement” (Concerto).
