Music for Galway presents: Last Words – Music for Good Friday

Friday, 19 April 2019, 5.00pm

The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble

Mark Duley director

This year’s programme takes its title from Heinrich Schütz’s beautiful setting of the last words of Christ on the cross: Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz. Also in the programme are settings of other texts, both in German and Latin, associated with death and final utterances: the canticle Nunc dimittis and the funeral psalm De profundis, in versions by Schein, Lassus (from his monumental Psalmi Davidis poenitentiales), Palestrina, Praetorius and Schütz again (from the famous Musikalische Exequien).

This concert is usually a sell-out so book early!
