FPC Choir to Present Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri Patientis Sanctissima

April 26, 2018


The First Parish Church Adult Choir will present Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri Patientis Sanctissima in the First Parish sanctuary on Sunday, May 6th at 3:00 pm.

Each movement of this seven-movement work is a deeply personal, reverent meditation on the members of Jesus’ body on the cross: his feet, his knees, his hands, his side, his breast, his heart, and his face. It features alternations between soloists who express devotional reflections and the whole chorus, who present settings of selected Biblical texts, predominantly from the Old Testament. The work will be accompanied by five-part strings and continuo.


Featuring soloists Nacole Palmer, Christine Letcher, Andrea Graichen, Martin Lescault, and John Adams.

Chamber orchestra: Mark Paxson & Trevor Peterson, violins; Julia Eiten, viola; Ben Noyes, cello; George Calvert, bass; Dr. Robert Greenlee, continuo organ.

Adult tickets: $10; Students: Free.

For tickets or more information, call (207) 729-7331.
