Opera Anywhere is delighted to perform this wonderful Meditation on the Sacred Passion of the Holy Redeemer, an oratorio composed by John Stainer in 1887. It is scored for a SATB choir and organ, and features solos for bass and tenor. Stainer intended the Crucifixion would be within the scope of most parish church choirs; it includes five hymns for congregational participation. The oratorio lends itself nicely to be performed with a choir on limited rehearsal time and Opera Anywhere would welcome all singers who would like to participate in the performances and are able to rehearse prior to the performance.
Music scores are available on request and all singers are asked to wear all black if possible.
There are tickets available for the ‘come and sing choir’ as well as for audiences who would simply like to just listen.
