The Seven Last Words of Christ

Haydn Complete Edition with critical report, Series XXVII, Vol. 2

Series: Henle Complete Edition Publisher: G. Henle Verlag Format: Softcover Composer: Joseph Haydn Editor: Heide Volckmar-Waschk

Written entirely in German.

When Haydn stopped in Passau on his second journey to England, he heard a vocal version of his own orchestral work “The Seven Last Words.” It had been made by the Kapellmeister at Passau cathedral Joseph Friebert and Haydn was quite impressed – except: “I believe I could have done the voice parts better.” He acquired a copy and set about making his own vocal version, taking over most of the text. Haydn particularly liked his own vocal work and it was also enthusiastically received by his contemporaries. The study edition is based on the volume (HN 5822) published as part of the Complete Edition by the Joseph Haydn Institute in Cologne.
