This concert forms a penetrating musical web that brings thought and reflection in 14 movements –like Christ’s way of the cross with its 14 stations, but with the power of the voice and of the woman as the guiding thread.

Membra Jesu Nostri by Buxtehude is a cycle of seven cantatas that sing of the body of the crucified Christ. The female composers Caroline Shaw and Anna Thorvaldsdottir have each written a contemporary response to the movements of the Membra Jesu Nostri – from a female perspective.
