Cappella Festiva concert - O Vos Omnes: Music for Lent

Saturday, Mar 14 2015;
7:00 PM to 8:15 PM

This intimate program features Buxtehude’s stunning, yet relatively unknown, Jesu Membra nostri, for chorus, strings, and soloists. Considered to be the first Lutheran oratorio—a precursor to Bach’s exquisite Passions—it is divided into seven, short cantatas.
Christine Howlett, artistic director, is delighted to direct the Cappella Festiva Chamber Choir assisted by Rachel Handman, Francia Mann, violins, Susan Seligman, cello, Phil Helm, bass, and James Fitzwilliam, organ
