Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome - no exceptions.

Dietrich Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri
February 25, 4:00 pm
The choir of Calvary Episcopal Church, under the direction of Music Director Kevin Durkin, and joined by sopranos Holly Bewlay, Tiffany Du Mouchelle, contralto Lynne McMurtry, tenor James Judd and bass baritone Daniel Ihasz, will present Dietrich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri. The work, while sung in Latin, is considered the first Lutheran oratorio, and is a seven-cantata meditation on the wounds of Christ. Solo arias are typically bookended by choral sections.
The singers will be joined in the program by instrumentalists to include the York Consort, a group of viol instruments, as well as two violinists, a cellist and an organist.
Freewill offerings are accepted. Download a poster.
