The Department of Music is providing limited rebroadcasts of the 2019 Good Friday liturgical performance at 12 pm and 5 pm on Friday, April 10. Learn more here.
In this seven-section work, lasting just over an hour, Haydn is at his most reflective. Evoking the last hours of Christ’s life, the work’s individual sections carry tempo markings of Largo, Adagio, Lento, Grave. In this performance, and as it was written, Seven Last Words will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service.
