Info for Kallembach: Most Sacred Body

James Kallembach’s newly commissioned cantata pays symbolic homage to seven aspects of the crucified body of Jesus. Kallembach combines Buxtehude’s 17th-century Membra Jesu nostri with visions from Milton’s epic masterpiece Paradise Lost to create a unique musical expression of the Passion. The work was commissioned by Music at Marsh Chapel specifically for use in Marsh Chapels Good Friday liturgy. It was premiered on Good Friday, March 25, 2016 with Scott Allen Jarrett conducting the Marsh Chapel Choir and Collegium. It is scored for string orchestra, chorus, and soloists. A second performance (from which this recording is taken) occurred on October 22, 2016. Recipient of awards from American Composers Forum, Pacific Chorale, and ASCAP, composer James Kallembachs choral works are performed throughout the United States and Europe. regarded as one of the most creative and innovative modern composers. (ArkivMusic) interpretation [and creation] of new music is rich and polished. (Chicago Classical Review)
