Lenten Choral Service

Lenten Choral Service

During worship on Sunday, March 18th, the Chancel Choir will present John Stainer’s most famous oratorio, The Crucifixion, written in 1887. It contains one of his most famous pieces—”God So Loved the World”. Stainer (1840-1901) was organist and director of choirs at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London and considered one of the most distinguished musicians of his generation. This work is for bass and tenor soloists, choir and organ. The text is based on the Passion of Christ. Join us on the 5th Sunday of Lent as the choir proclaims the passion story through music.

It is a most fitting piece for our Lenten theme—
Here We Stand...in the Shadow of the Cross!
