Easter Concert. Capella Davídica
12 April - 19:00 - 20:30
The Capella Davídica of the Cathedral of Menorca choir, plus instruments and soloists, all under the renowned conductor and organ player Juan de la Rubia, will play -of obliged expressivity- the oratorio piece Membra Jesu nostri, by Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1707). This work, a landmark of the 18th-century music, is dedicated to the different parts of Jesus Christ’s body on the Cross, with highly refined music, full of exquisite harmony textures and an extraordinary lyricism, that puts music upon Biblical texts and, without a doubt, leads to deep thought.
