''Meditations on the Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross" for String Quartet, by Joseph Haydn
Again this year we will be able to listen to the Sturhill String Quartet as they play this unusual work which was first played on Good Friday in the Cathedral in Cadiz with full orchestra in 1783. We will hear a later version, with readings and time for meditation between movements.
The Sturthill Quartet consists of - Janet Lane & Diana Wilkinson (violins), Louise Stewart Cox (viola) & Mary Hindle (cello) - four friends who have played chamber music together for mutual enjoyment for some years.
