Franz Joseph Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on The Cross will be performed on Good Friday evening (Mar.29) at 7:30, at Trinity. The musicians will be Kathlyn Stevens, violin; William Sirois, violin; John Sellick, viola; and Peter Cosbey, cello. Admission is by free will offering.

Haydn’s composition consists of seven main meditative sections based on the seven expressions (Words) attributed to Jesus during his crucifixion. The seven sections are labelled “sonatas” and are all slow. They are framed by a slow Introduction and a fast “Earthquake” conclusion, for a total of nine movements.

Selected poetry reflecting the feeling of each of the Words extends the textual portion of the presentation.
