D. Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri, M.C. Kiehr, R. Dominguez, A. Scholl, G. Türk, U. Messthaler, Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, René Jacobs

A pinnacle of High Church Lutheranism, Dieterich Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri, "the first Lutheran oratorio," "is divided into seven parts, each addressed to a different part of Christ's crucified body: feet, knees, hands, side, chest, heart, and head." Another rendition by a different ensemble posted here — Dieterich Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri Performed by La Venexiana .
