On the most dramatic day of the church calendar we invite you to our evening Good Friday Concert for 2015 at St Matthew-in-the-City.

St Matthew's Voices will present the deep and passionate work Membra Jesu Nostri by Dietrich Buxtehude.

Dating from 1680, the piece (translated as The Limbs of Our Jesus) depicts in seven movements the different parts of Christ’s crucified body: feet, knees, hands, side, breast, heart, and head. It is difficult not to be carried away by the current of Buxtehude’s dark and stirring arias and instrumental ritornellos as it builds toward a beautifully crafted Amen.

St Matthew's Voices will be accompanied by an instrumental consort including the Donald Barriball Memorial Chamber Organ.

A $10 koha is requested for this concert.
