Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri

March 9, 2019 - 7:00 pm


With gratitude for our residency at Westmoreland Congregational United Church of Christ, Great Noise joins the Westmoreland Festival Chorus once again. In a departure from our usual 20th- and 21st-century programming, we will perform 18th-century Baroque master Dieterich Buxtehude‘s Membra Jesu Nostri (7 cantatas about the limbs of Christ). The entire work will be presented this evening, with selections being presented at the Westmoreland service the following day. Westmoreland’s Music Director Alec Davis will be directing the ensemble.

This will be GNE’s debut appearance at the stunning Franciscan Monastery of D.C. The performance will be free of charge.
