Following on from our hugely succesful First World War Centenary concert (which featured Eventide  (In Memoriam Edith Cavell) which Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society especially commissioned from Patrick Hawes) we return to St Peter's Sheringham for our Spring concert with music especially relevant for Passiontide. We shall be singing works by two quite different 19th Century composers, one British, the other Italian.

John Stainer's much loved oratorio The Crucifixion subtitled 'A meditation on the sacred passion of the Holy Redeemer' is written for choir and organ. It was written for the choir of Marylebone Church and first performed on February 24 1887. It includes 5 hymns intended for audience participation.

Giuseppe Verdi's Stabat Mater  was composed in 1896-97 and now forms part of the Quattro pezzi sacri which were first performed on 7 April 1898 in the Grande Opera,Paris. The 4 pieces had been composed separately over the 20 years since Verdi 'retired' from composing after finishing his Requiem in 1874.

A Lenten Prayer has been composed especially for the choir by it's Musical Director, Nathan Waring, and draws on words written for Ash Wednesday.
