Gwybodaeth

ETO is staging a production of the extraordinary masterpiece Membra Jesu Nostri, a set of seven cantatas for voices (a unique collaboration with gifted young singers and period players from the Royal College of Music) and period orchestra by Bach’s great contemporary Buxtehude.

Setting a 13th century poem together with visceral texts from the Bible, it focuses on seven parts of the crucified body of Christ – hence the title, ‘the limbs of our Jesus’. Equally devotional and theatrical, it is one of the most inspiring pieces of music of the 17th century, and its text poses fascinating questions about language, the body and evangelism.

In collaboration with Royal College of Music.
