The Seven Last Words of Christ by : Christin Heitmann : Joseph Haydn
At the end of the 18th century; the town of Cádiz in southern Spain provided the backdrop for a Passion to mark Christ's hour of death; its focal point was the reading and interpretation of Christ's last words. Haydn was commissioned to write short meditative music to be played alternately with the readings. Haydn composed a work for orchestra. Due to its success; the publisher commissioned Haydn to make an arrangement for string quartet. As the wind instruments double the strings for the most part; only a few changes had to be made to the string parts. We present the arrangement for string quartet based on the musical text of the Haydn Complete Edition (in preparation).
