Another chance to join the experience of performing John Stainer’s “The Crucifixion”

“God so loved the world …”

We are going to perform John Stainer’s “The Crucifixion” on the Saturday before Palm Sunday. “The Crucifixion” tells the story of Christ’s suffering and death with amazingly beautiful music set for two soloists, choir and organ. Since its first performance in 1887 it has become a much-loved piece of church music of the Victorian period.

The Choir Director warmly invites you to join the experience! Details of rehearsals are on the Music page under Activities and HERE!
