SIR JOHN STAINER The Crucifixion

The Choir Of St Marylebone Parish Church
Gavin Roberts

The third of his four oratorios The Crucifixion (1887) was dedicated by Sir John Stainer (1840–1901), then Organist and Choir Master of St. Paul's Cathedral, to his 'pupil and friend W. Hodge and the choir' of St Marylebone Parish Church, who first performed it on Thursday 24th February 1887, the day after Ash Wednesday.

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 Stainer's most widely known work takes us on an emotional and spiritual journey, and that journey is, of course, Christ's 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.

Christ's final journey was the very journey for which the Word of God became incarnate; the journey to which the whole of Jesus' earthly ministry had, inexorably, been leading; a journey that fulfilled Christ's destiny, revealed his glory, and completed God the Father's plan for creation's 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 oratorio's 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.
