Palm Sunday Concert: "The Crucifixion," composed by Sir. John Stainer
April 14th at 5:00 pm in the Sanctuary

The Chancel Choir will present "The Crucifixion," composed by Sir. John Stainer in 1887. This Lenten Cantata is centered around the final events of Jesus' life. The work, which is scored for choir, male soloists, and organ, is among the most popular in all of sacred choral literature. "The Crucifixion" contains hymns and anthems, the best beloved being, "God So Loved the World." Our choir is presenting this work as part of our church's Inaugural Organ Concert Series due to the way the organ is used to bring the story to life. Sir. John Stainer was organist and director of music at St. Paul's Cathedral in London during most of the Victorian Era. Our choir will have the opportunity to visit St. Paul's on their upcoming trip to England. The performance of "The Crucifixion" is free and open to the public. Please join us for this moving performance at the start of Holy Week.
