Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ

March 30-31, 2018

Description

Originally commissioned as an orchestral work to accompany Lenten worship services in Cadiz, Spain, this string quartet arrangement of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ serves as a powerful centerpiece for reflection this Easter holiday. The piece is broken into nine movements; the introduction, seven sections labeled “sonatas” for each of the seven words (or sentences) uttered on the cross and a final movement depicting the earthquake following the crucifixion.
