Edinburgh Royal Choral Union
Michael Bawtree conductor
Modelled on the great passion settings of JS Bach, Stainer’s Crucifixion is amongst the most popular of all English choral works and vividly portrays the events of the Passion of Christ. Scored for tenor and bass soloists, organ and mixed choir, the piece combines recitatives, solos and masterful choruses that range from the graphic mob shouts of Crucify Him to the ethereally beautiful meditation at the work’s centrepiece God so loved the world.
ERCU is a leading choir in Edinburgh, whose recent performance of Messiah at the Usher Hall, conducted by Jane Glover, was described as “one that will stand out in this choir’s illustrious history.”
