Oxford Festival of the Arts: Membra Jesu Nostri
June 26 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm£2 - £12
Dieterich Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri performed by Three Parts Vied
The early music collective Three Parts Vied returns to the Oxford Festival of the Arts to explore the ‘parts vied’ of Jesus on the cross. We intersperse the seven movements with devotional poetry from the post-Reformation world in which Buxtehude lived. Some of the texts exist in books dating from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century which now reside in the collections of the Magdalen College Library. There will be a rare opportunity to view and handle these books in the chapel before the concert.
