Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri (Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford)

Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri (Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford)

John Mark Ainsley (Tenor); Robin Blaze (Counter-tenor); Giles Underwood (Bass);

"Membra Jesu Nostri is a cycle of seven cantatas, each contemplating a part of Jesus on the cross: feet, knees, hands, side, breast, heart and face. John Mark Ainsley, Robin Blaze and Giles Underwood owe their careers to the time they spent in this choir and return to sing with an intensity suitable to the intimately sensuous nature of the work, ably supported by the choir and its particularly fine trebles. String playing is outstanding throughout, with the viol consort Phantasm deliciously taut and sinewy in the lovely sixth cantata, Upon the Heart." (The Observer ★★★★★)
