Our annual presentation of Haydn’s epic masterpiece, The Seven Last Words of Christ, comes to St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral. We will be accompanied by the Dean of the Cathedral, the Very Reverend Penelope Bridges, reading poems by John Donne, George Herbert, Robert Herrick, Edith Sitwell, Edwin Muir, David Gascoyne along with the original scripture upon which Haydn based each of the movements of this monumental work, The Seven Last Words of Christ. Originally commissioned for a Good Friday service in 1783, it was adapted for string quartet by the composer and has since become a treasured Easter-time tradition around the world.

This concert will be open to the public with a name-your-own ticket price, and all proceeds will benefit nonprofits with a local presence, including the San Diego Rescue MissionBorder Angels, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
