This cycle, which is clearly not intended for liturgical use and dedicated to his friend Gustav Duben, must indubitably be seen as an expression of Buxtehude's own religious experience and personal devotion. In fact, we known unusually little about this great musician – no personal letters or anecdotes have survived. His music speaks to us all the more powerfully – especially the Membra Jesu Nostri, with its highly personal combination of introverted expressivity, deliberately simple declamation and great harmonic richness. No matter how alien the content of the medieval Latin text may be to our 21st-century sensibilities, it nevertheless inspired Buxtehude to produce a visionary setting, in a vivid cycle of compositions which still go straight to our hearts. The Netherlands Bach Society presents about 50 concerts a year with repertoire usually focusing on Bach, his contemporaries and predecessors. Led by Jos van Veldhoven, this group has gained broad international acclaim for their insightful and virtuosic performances, both live and on their numerous recordings for Channel Classics.
