The Evangelists give us detailed information on the last moments of the life of Jesus Christ. The different narrations of the four Gospels created “the passion of Christ ” that integrates together the different details given by the evangelists in their accounts. A typical example of this are the Last Seven Words of the agonising Christ on the cross. These seven last phrases are composed of Jesus’ final utterings as reported by the evangelists and molded together by popular devotion. The Last Seven Words have become a source of inspiration to artistic , literary and musical performances and expressions. On March 29, the Carmelite Church in Mdina will be hosting a Haydn’s interpretation of the Seven Last Words of Christ Music and the recital of the words held as ipsissima VERBA Christi will help us to get into the spirit of Holy Week through the meditation on the Sorrowful Passion and Death of Our Lord .
Entrance is free . All donations go to the restoration of 17th century organ located in the Church .
