Haydn – The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross

Holy Week Festival 2021Virtual Events

Originally conceived as a Lenten oratorio for the oratory in Cadiz, and utilising an extremely wide range of tonalities, this work was performed widely throughout Europe during the 1780s. In this concert, we hear the composer’s own adaptation for string quartet expertly presented by The Revolutionary Drawing Room, with a sound derived from the beauty and flexibility of gut strings and a range of authentic period and replica bows.
