World premiere of a new transcription, Paris, between 1850 and 1860: two of the greatest composers of the time, César Franck and Charles Gounod, both set the ‘Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross’. Two opposing temperaments, two violently contrasted works; yet the same vibrant faith shines out of both these two masterpieces.
