Monday 21 March, 7.30pm

Compline - J. S. Bach Jesu meine freude

Tuesday 22 March, 7.30pm

Compline - Charpentier Le Reniement de St Pierre



Wednesday 23 March, 7.30pm

Stainer The Crucifixion

Tenor: Jason Darnell  Bass: Sam Hucklebridge  Organ: David Pipe

John Stainer's powerful setting of the Passion which, while dramatic, is never over-indulgent in its use of Victorian solo and chorus writings.  Like the Bach Passions on which it was based, it includes congregational hymns.  We follow this with the service of Compline.
