The Early Music Albert 2019 Festival presents Baroque Cantatas & Motets on Sunday, May 5 at 8 PM at First Presbyterian Church (10025 105 St)

7:00 PM Pre-Concert Talk by Roderick Bryce, Arthur Newcombe Room (Free) Show is at 8:00PM

This concert features one of the greatest masterworks of 17th-century music: Dieterich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri, an intense and expressive cycle of cantatas on the wounds of Christ, combining vivid texts with intensely expressive music. At the heart of the cycle of cantatas is the most tender and intimate “Ad cor”. Here, Buxtehude requests a dramatic instrumentation change to the delicate, shimmering timbre of an ensemble of five viols.

Also on the program are several Motets y Schein and Buxtehude.

Performing will be a stellar cast of Alberta’s finest baroque musicians:

Dawn Bailey, soprano, tenor viola da gamba
Jolaine Kerley, soprano
Aoife Donnelly, alto
Ian Bannerman, tenor

O Herr, Ich bin Dein Knecht
Freue dich des Weibes deiner Jugend
Die mit Tränen säen
Dennoch bleibe ich stets an dir
Wende dich, Herr
