Joseph Haydn's 'Seven Last Words from the Cross' - Introduction: Maestoso ed Adagio - as performed by the Navarra Quartet.
Haydn's remarkable string quartet cycle was composed for the Lenten liturgy at Spain's Cádiz Cathedral in 1787: each slow movement was to follow a sermon on one of the dying Christ's last sayings in the gospels.
This performance was a part of the 2009 City of London Festival and took place in the Church of St. Stephen, Walbrook, on the 26th of June 2009.
The Navarra Quartet consist of: Xander van Vliet (Violin), Marije Ploemacher (Violin), Simone van der Giessen (Viola), Nathaniel Boyd (Cello).
