Stainer The Crucifixion

Inscribed to the composer’s friend and pupil, William Hodge, Sub Organist of St Paul’s Cathedral and Organist of Marylebone Parish Church in London, The Crucifixion was first heard in 1887 and has retained a favourite place in the hearts and minds of so many ever since. Not least among the work’s joys are the glorious hymn-tunes abounding throughout; of these, Cross of Jesus has broken free and is most modern hymnals set to Charles Wesley’s Come, Thou long-expected Jesus, whilst All for Jesus, Holy Jesu, by Thy Passion and even Jesus the Crucified pleads for me are finding increasing acceptance without the perameters of The Crucifixion. Leeds Minster’s Director of Music conducts the choir and David Houlder is the accompanist. The solo roles are taken by members of the choir.
