Description

Venetian L'OFFERTA MUSICALE return for their much anticipated annual Easter concert at St Anselm & Cecilia's, Kingsway.

Haydn's 'Seven Last Words of Christ'

This hauntingly beautiful piece has seven movements; evoking the seven last words (sentences) of Christ on the cross. These are framed by an introduction and final 'Earthquake' movement.

Adapted for string quartet by the composer in 1787, the piece was originally commissioned for a Good Friday Service in Cadiz, Spain and was performed in a church completely robed in black apart from a single light lit in the sanctuary...
