Spring 2018 Music for Passiontide – Saturday 10 March 2018

Our Easter 2018 concert will include John Stainer’s ‘Crucifixion’. Saturday 10th March

This ever-popular work was written in 1887 to a libretto by W J Sparrow Simpson. It has remained a firm favourite with audiences. Intended to come within the scope of many church choirs the oratorio also includes
Five hymns for audience participation. Perhaps the best known number is ‘God so loved the
World’. With this work will be a number of other pieces for passiontide.
