Modelled on the great passion settings of J.S. Bach, Stainerís 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, this 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'
.
