Under the baton of conductor Patrick Quigley, Grammy®-nominated choir Seraphic Fire (“supple, effortless tone and perfect blend” – and Chicago's own Spektral Quartet (“style, soul and seriousness” –Chicago Classical Review) join forces to perform Josef Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ, a powerful, deeply moving work that tells the story of the crucifixion through music, during Holy Week.  The piece comprises an introduction, seven slow movements corresponding to the seven phrases spoken by Christ on the cross, and a musical depiction of the earthquake following the crucifixion.
