'Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ'
Haydn’s Seven Last Words is a deeply moving work inspiring contemplation. It is haunting, personal, vulnerable and overwhelmingly human. It is a personal and deeply felt response to the last utterances of Christ and Haydn considered it his greatest musical achievement.
The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross Op. 51 by Franz Joseph Haydn
Jacob Klock and Elisa Wicks, violins; Ingrid Rodgers, viola; Pam Chaddon, cello
In the hands of four string players, with only one instrument on a part, the music has a heightened intimacy. To hear it interspersed with the spoken word, it takes on a spiritual dimension rarely found in even the most profound compositions. This is music which cuts across religious and social lines and speaks to all humanity.
