This double album, with more than 100 minutes of music, actually represents an excerpt from a group of works that ran much longer in concert: up to three-and-a-half hours. The Seven Responses of the title are just that: compositional responses to Dietrich Buxtehude's oratorio Membra Jesu nostri (1680), a work of Bach-like scope consisting of seven cantatas, each addressed to a single limb of the crucified Jesus. The seven new works alternated in performance by the choir The Crossing with the cantatas of the Buxtehude work.
