Notes and Editorial Reviews

La sete di Christo (The Thirst of Christ) is a theological-philosophical contemplation of the fifth of the Seven Last Words of Christ. Four protagonists gather under the cross of Jesus on Calvary: Mary, the disciple John, Joseph of Arimathia and Nicodemus. Bernardo Pasquini's musical setting of their different reactions to the confrontation with the crucified Messiah is a work of melodic and contrapuntal mastery in a large-scale, self-contained form.
