St Mark Passion by Charles Wood
Palm Sunday at 7 pm

A highlight of this year’s Passiontide is our Palm Sunday performance of Charles Wood’s rarely heard St Mark Passion, composed in 1920 for King’s College, Cambridge at the request of the Rev’d. Dr Eric Milner-White. This cantata based on the Gospel of Mark divides the Passion into its five traditional parts, termed ‘Lessons’: The Last Supper; Gethsemane and Betrayal; the Jewish Trial; the Roman Trial; and the Crucifixion. The intervals between the Lessons are filled with stanzas of the hymn ‘Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle’, as well as congregational hymns. The work is approximately one hour in length. Wood composed the piece, scored for choir, soloists, and organ, over the course of nine days, from August 1 to 9, 1920. With expertly balanced devotion and drama set to glorious music, this performance of the St Mark Passion will provide a powerful entrée to the solemnity of Holy Week. We hope you will join us for this extraordinary event.

Easter Vigil Reception

Following the 9 pm Easter Vigil liturgy on Saturday, April 20

This event is a potluck reception, and we ask that members of the parish help us make the night a special gathering for our community. We need sweet and savoury dishes of all kinds, as well as volunteers to help with cleaning up. If you plan on attending the Vigil, please consider contributing to the feast! Everyone is welcome to attend. Bring some food and joy to share, and invite someone to celebrate together with us!
