Join us on Good Friday, 30th March 2018, as we sing The Crucifixion by John Stainer.

Come to sing the choruses, or come to listen to the performance and join in with the hymns as you wish.

Rehearsal for those who will sing the choruses at 5pm.

Performance at 6pm.

Stainer’s work was written in 1887 for the choir of Marylebone Church, and is a setting of words by a Revd. Sparrow-Simpson. It lasts about one hour. The title page describes it as ‘a meditation on the sacred passion of the Holy Redeemer for two solo voices (tenor and bass) and chorus and interspersed with hymns to be sung by the congregation. After its first performance it became very popular with amateur choral societies and church choirs throughout the UK. It continues to be performed during Lent and Easter, and its singable tunes are remembered by many of us who have heard them from our youth.
