This afternoon the choir and a number of friends and visitors joined together in the Church to rehearse the Crucifixion with our two guest soloists, Peter Webster (baritone) and Martin Ridley (tenor) . After an hour and a half of singing, we repaired to the rooms for a cup of tea and reconvened in Church at 6:00 pm where a good number of people had gathered to hear the work sung.
Not a Service, but not a Concert either, this performance marked the beginning of  our Holy Week Journey towards the Cross and on Sunday the joy of the Resurrection.

Some excellent playing by Joanna Chivers on the Organ, and wonderful singing from our Soloists with a powerful chorus, combined with the moving work of Stainer, including some congregational hymns, was very well received by the congregation. A fitting start to Holy Week
