This series of seven Easter meditations includes some of Haydn’s most intense and inventive music, evoking the struggle of Christ’s final hours and the solemnity of the church’s Holy Week services. This live performance of The Seven Last Words of our Saviour on the Cross juxtaposes Haydn’s original instrumental movements with their later choral versions, offering a multi-layered experience of the work.

Shortlisted for Gramophone Awards 2011 in the Choral Category

‘This meld of orchestra, chorus and soloists is moving and magnificent, in both idea and execution.’
Michael Church, The Independent, 28 January 2011

‘This is a full-bodied performance which nevertheless behaves itself with admirable restraint … The choral movements are sustained with poise and discipline, and the solo line-up is equally impressive.’ ****
Andrew Clark, Financial Times, 5 February 2011
