Franz Tunder Salve mi Jesu
Franz Tunder Herr, nun lässest du deinen diener
Franz Tunder Nisi Dominus aedificaverit
Musica Poetica returns to Tunder World after a summer break with a wonderfully reflective lunchtime concert featuring some of Franz Tunder’s most reflective and spiritual compositions.
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!
