Seven Last Words From The Cross

Publisher BANKS MUSIC PUBLICATIONS
Composer Jonathan Bielby
Voice/Instrument SATB
Difficulty Unrated

 

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:
