Our Membra Jesu nostri is a queer and trans-y reenactment of the devotional rhythms of this beautiful Medieval hymn, as set to music by Dietrich Buxtehude in 1680.

A work of spiritual reclamation and erotic celebration, this work also celebrates the quotidian rhythms of caregiving, and acknowledges the agony of grief.

With new words by Luke Hathaway and an afterword by Daniel Cabena.

Printed and published by Karen Schindler, Baseline Press.
