Dietrich Buxtehude's Membre Jesu Nostri is a seven-part passion-cum-cantata cycle organized around the seven wounds on the body of Jesus as he hung crucified on the cross. Scored for six soloists, a five-member chorus, a nine-piece orchestra, and, for one movement only, a five-piece gamba consort, the Membre Jesu Nostri is a large-scale but intimate work that dwells on the subject matter in an manner that uniquely combines the vocal with the instrumental and the spiritual with the sensual. While some later listeners may be uncomfortable with the text's fascination with corporeal imagery, Buxtehude's setting is unarguably both spiritually sincere and palpably lovely, and the result is an oddly but deeply moving work of High Renaissance art. In this profoundly soulful and wonderfully musical performance with Wolfgang Katschner directing the Lautten Compagney and the Capella Angelica, Buxtehude's Membre Jesu Nostri, flanked by his Jesu, meines Lebens Leben and Herr, wenn ich nur dich hab, makes an indelible impression as a prime piece of sacred music. Although the sound places the listener perhaps too far away from the performers, the sense of place and time is convincing -- one would almost swear one were sitting about two-thirds of the way back in a mid-sized stone church.
