The XIV edition of the Festival of Religious Music will arrive in Tenerife this Saturday 16 March, with the performance of the Sul-Cordas quartet in the municipality of Güímar. Gregorio Gutiérrez will be in charge of the artistic direction of the ensemble, which will perform "The Seven Last Words of Christ", by Franz Joseph Haydn, in the church of San Pedro at 20:00 hours. Admission is free.

"The Seven Last Words of Christ" is a piece of sacred music, published in 1787, the fruit of the work of Franz Joseph Haydn. It has been performed in important European capitals such as Paris, Berlin and Vienna, among others. Its author adapted the work so that it could be interpreted by string quartets, as well as with instruments such as the piano and so that it could be sung as an oratorio by soloists, choirs and orchestras. The Sul-Cordas quartet is a chamber ensemble that comes from the Orquesta Sinfonietta de Canarias and has the artistic direction of Gregorio Gutiérrez. Its members have a great interpretative and pedagogical formation and have participated in different orchestras around the world, such as the Venezuelan Symphony Orchestra, the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and the Teatro alla Scala Orchestra of Milan, among others.
