It has been the Alexander String Quartet’s pleasure to present a performance of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral on Good Friday alongside verse readings by Dean Emeritus Alan Jones. This year, we spent Holy Week creating a virtual performance. We recorded each of our parts while sheltering-in-place, and our brilliant engineer and producer, Matt Car, helped to blend them into one. It proved a time-consuming endeavor coping with many challenges (no click-track) but, providing a welcome opportunity to attempt to assemble something of appropriate significance in challenging times.
