This week’s Service is ‘Olivet to Calvary’ -John Henry Maunder:
Conductor: Dr Kevin Morgan. Organist: Nigel Ogden
Olivet to Calvary ‘is a fine example of music written for the late Victorian/early Edwardian Anglican church.
Described as a sacred cantata, ‘Olivet to Calvary’ recalls the scenes which mark the last few days of Christ’s life on earth.Part 1 starts with Christ’s jubilant journey to Jerusalem and ends with the scene on the Mount of Olives. Part 2 begins with the Feast of Passover with Christ’s commandment to his disciples to ‘Love one Another’ and end with the Crucifixion at Calvary. It is interspersed with congregational hymns which reflect on the scenes .
