Haydn - The Seven Last Words of Christ


Orchestre de Chambre de Toulouse
Gilles Colliard

15,00 €

The seven last words of Christ are the phrases spoken by Jesus just before his death, crucified.

Taken from four gospels, they are in the following order:

"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." Luke 23:34
"Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise." Luke 23:43
"Jesus said to his mother: "Woman, this is your son." Then he said to the disciple: "This is your mother." John 19:26-27
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (in Aramaic: Eloï, EloÏ, lama sabbaqthani?) Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34
"I thirst." John 19:28
"It is finished" John 19:29-30
"Father, into your hand I commend my spirit." Luke 23:46

First performed in Cadix, Spain, in 1786 in instrumental form, the work was reinterpreted the following year in a version for string quartet and finally with the text, in the form of an oratorio.
