This concert features one of the greatest masterworks of 17th-century music, Dieterich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri, an intense and expressive cycle of cantatas on the wounds of Christ. The programme will also explore selected masterworks of 17th-century Germany for choir, soloists, and instruments. The Keio University Ensemble from Tokyo, directed by Nozomi Sato, joins local soloists, members of EMV and UBC’s Baroque Mentorship Orchestra, and Cappella Borealis (an early brass music ensemble with faculty members Alexander Fisher and Jeremy Berkman, and alumni Ellen Marple (BMus’08, MMus’10) and Nathan Wilkes (DMA’97) performing sackbuts) for a rich and varied programme from the German Baroque.
