Sunday 14 April
All are welcome - no admission charge
Our evening service includes a performance by Trinity Festival Choir of Stainer's Crucifixion.
Stainer's Crucifixion, a popular work especially amongst choral singers, is described as a Meditation on the Sacred Passion of the Holy Redeemer, and was first performed in Marylebone in 1887. It follows the structure of the great Bach Passions in that, like Bach's great chorales, the narrative is interspersed with hymns to be sung by the congregation. Its style is, of course, high Victorian, and with its expressive choral writing and strong emotional appeal, especially in the sublime chorus 'God so loved the world', it has become a perennial favourite amongst singers and
congregations up and down the land.
