Haydyn

Birmingham Festival Choral Society presents The Seven Last Words

Patrick Larley conductor

Kevin Gill organ

Haydn - The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross

Kodály - Missa Brevis

The Seven Last Words is Haydn’s most profound choral work. In it we hear none of the bubbling and uplifting choruses of The Creation, The Seasons or his Masses, but an intense, deeply religious progression of predominantly chordal movements depicting Christ’s final words from the cross.

Kodály’s Missa Brevis is a lyrical and highly Romantic gem from one of the most inventive of choral composers.
