A Chapel Highlight
Duke Vespers Ensemble releases its first commercial CD
The live recording from Duke Chapel features the choir performing “Membra Jesu Nostri Patientis Sanctissima,” a Baroque-era piece by German composer Dieterich Buxtehude (1637-1707). A reception to celebrate the release of the new CD takes place in the Duke Chapel basement lounge at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, following the evening’s choral vespers worship service. Drinks and pastries with a German theme will be served. The event is free and open to the public.
