Herman StindersMúsicas para el buen morir. Memento mori
Suite nº 12, FbWV 612, by Johann Jakob Froberger
Suite No. 12, FbWV 612, by Johann Jakob Froberger. The lament, a genre typical of baroque music, is a perfect emblem for the fleetingness of life, “memento mori”. This work by Froberger, with its air of calmness and meditation, was composed in memory of his patron, whose ascent to heaven is recreated in the prolonged ascending scale at the end of the work.
