Musica Poetica returns to Tunder World after a summer break from their lunchtime concerts in the City of London. Here’s a closer look at their next one, Depart in Peace…

So far this year the performances of the music of Franz Tunder have been a revolution to many people. And with performances in London, Bath and Brighton Musica Poetica are certainly getting noticed.

Depart in Peace on Thursday 28 September promises to be a wonderfully reflective musical interlude in this stunning venue from the frenzy of the City of London outside. This musical oasis will feature some of Franz Tunder’s most reflective and spiritual compositions.

Depart in Peace

Like many of his contemporaries and composers of all periods, Franz Tunder set to music the Song of Simeon, or Nunc dimittis as it is better known in the UK. The old man Simeon takes up the child Jesus in his arms, and knows that he can now die in the knowledge that he has seen the Messiah.

Unusually, Tunder’s setting features a bass duet and five stringed instruments – a very daring and innovative combination!

Franz Tunder:
Salve mi Jesu
Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener
Nisi Dominus aedificaverit
