The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross
To mark the bicentennial of Haydn's death, Aled Jones introduces a concert featuring his masterpiece The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, from the city of Cadiz where the work was commissioned in 1787.
The concert is performed by Le Concert des Nations under the baton of Jordi Savall in the Oratorio de la Santa Cueva. The piece consists of an introduction followed by seven sonatas. Before each sonata each one of the seven last words of Christ is read in Latin by Padre Guillermo Dominguez Leonsegui, priest of the Santa Cueva.
