Crucifixion at St Mary’s


We spent Good Friday evening at our cathedral, listening to ‘The Crucifixion’ by Sir John Stainer. The Choir did its usual excellent job with two good soloists, a young (most people are young, when you get to my age!) and very capable organist, and it was conducted by Mrs Christine Walker. I did a blog about about the history of the piece and the composer, some time ago, but am still at a loss to determine the exact reason (or reasons) for the popularity it holds in our psyche.
