Emily Carr String Quartet

The Seven Last Words (Die sieben letzten Worte) by Franz Joseph Haydn was commissioned by the Catholic cathedral for Holy Week, the week preceding Easter, in 1785. It was composed originally for string orchestra, and made up of seven sonatas plus an introduction. The seven movements were meant to express and comment on the seven last statements of Christ as he was dying on the cross, as recorded in scripture. The Seven Last "Words" of Jesus Christ from the cross are actually seven short phrases that Jesus uttered on Calvary that serve as an excellent holy week meditation.

It is the 1796 version that we will hear performed in St. Andrew's Cathedral by the local string ensemble, the Emily Carr String Quartet.
