In Studio with Anderson & Roe

Music and Poetry for Holy Week
In 1785 Josef Haydn wrote music for a Good Friday service to be interspersed with readings of what the Bible says were the seven last words spoken by Christ on the cross. In 2005, poet Michael Dennis Browne wrote his own texts to accompany Haydn's music. Browne reads his poems in the PT studio.
