Το πρώτο λουθηρανικό ορατόριο που γράφτηκε ποτέ ήταν αυτό του Δανού Dietrich Buxtehude, σημαντικού συνθέτη, κορυφαίου οργανίστα του γερμανικού μπαρόκ, και μιας από τις κύριες επιρροές του J. S. Bach :
Membra Jesu Nostri [Τα μέλη του κυρίου ημών Ιησού], μια σειρά από 7 καντάτες, κάθε μια και ένας διαλογισμός πάνω σε ένα μέρος του σώματος του Χριστού πάνω στο Σταυρό.
Ακούμε την πρώτη από αυτές: Ad Pedes.

The first Lutheran oratorio ever written was that of the Dannish Dietrich Buxtehude, prominent composer and leading organist of the German Baroque, and one of J.S. Bach’s main influences :
Membra Jesu Nostri [Members of Our Lord Jesus], a a series of 7 cantatas, each one meditating on a part of the body of Christ on the Cross.
We hear the first of these : Ad Pedes.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
