The Choir of St Marylebone Parish Church
The Crucifixion has been performed at St Marylebone Parish Church every year since its first performance, and this live recording is sung by the choir of the church.
Sir John Stainerís most widely known work takes us on an emotional and spiritual journey, and that journey is, of course, Christís journey, a journey towards the cross that awaits him on the hill of Calvary, Golgotha, the place of a skull, just outside the walls of Jerusalem.
Christís final journey was the very journey for which the Word of God became incarnate; the journey to which the whole of Jesusí earthly ministry had, inexorably, been leading; a journey that fulfilled Christís destiny, revealed his glory, and completed God the Fatherís plan for creationís salvation.
This is the first performance recorded in the place for which it was written since the 1999 recording made by the English Chamber Choir. 2017 marks the oratorioís 130th Anniversary as well as the 200th anniversary of the present parish church and the 900th anniversary of Christian worship in the parish that was, in the fifteenth century, to become St Marylebone.
