"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

Organists' Review: February 2009



Voice: SATB


Seven Last Words from the Cross is an attempt to write a modern alternative to Stainer's masterpiece The Crucifixion. Like the Stainer it is scored for two soloists, choir and organ, has one unaccompanied movement, and includes hymns for everyone to sing.

The narrator’s part has not been given to a man but to that fascinating disciple, Mary Magdalene - Mary from Magdala.

The work is intended to be performed in Lent, Passiontide or Holy Week, but not exclusively. The first performance was actually in July and commemorated the feast of St Mary Magdalene.

A recording of the first performance from St. Mary Redcliffe can be found on Youtube:
