In this seven-section work, 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 by the St. Lawrence and Friends, Haydn's music will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service by the Rev. Dr. Tiffany Steinwert, Dean for Religious & Spiritual Life.
This annual program is presented in partnership with Music at Stanford and the Office for Religious and Spiritual Life.
