The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross in Spain

Saturday, 7 April, 2012

The Austrian composer Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) wrote The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross for the Good Friday service at the Catedral de Santa Cruz de Cádiz. It provides musical interludes during the priest’s meditations on Christ’s final utterances, and offers a moving journey through grief, resignation and redemption. Here, it is performed in the San Agustin church in Santiago de Compostela by the Dominant Quartet with Do Phuong Nhu as the lead violin.
