The Revolutionary Drawing Room currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, performs Haydn’s set of reflective and dramatic movements illustrating the Seven Words of the Saviour on the Cross. Commissioned as a passion for the Cathedral at Cadiz, it was originally scored for full orchestra, and was intended as instrumental music for reflection on the words delivered by the Bishop.


Haydn later made arrangements of the piece for string quartet, for fortepiano and eventually also as an oratorio with SATB soloists and choir. The Revolutionary Drawing Room performs the string quartet arrangement with readings.
