Program: #02-13   Air Date: Apr 01, 2002

From the multi-disc set "The Golden Age of European Polyphony" from the Belgian label Cypres, we move on to rarely heard music of Nicholas Gombert.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant from Wendall Wilson.

NOTE: All of the music on this program is from the
Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht 2001.

This concert features the early music ensemble The Sixteen and Fretwork directed by Harry Christophers, and is a complete performance of Dietrich Buxtehude's series of cantatas that reflect on the parts of the body of the suffering Christ (from feet up to face), called Membra Jesu nostri:

  1. Ad Pedes
  2. Ad Genua
  3. Ad Manus
  4. Ad Latus
  5. Ad Pectus
  6. Ad Cor
  7. Ad Faciem
