The power and the passion
This Easter a local combined choir of more than 40 voices (including St Andrew’s Choir and Spiritsong) will present The Passion According to St Mark – a meditative and powerful piece of English choral music written in 1920 by Charles Wood.
Commissioned by the Dean of King’s College, Cambridge, this is a technically demanding work for both choir and organist.
The combined choir, along with invited soloists (Rhyss Daniell and Adrian Price), a guest conductor from New Zealand (Stuart Weightman) and with Warren Whitney at the organ, will present The Passion According to St Mark at St Carthage’s Cathedral in Lismore on Good Friday, April 2, at 5.30pm; and at St Martin’s in Mullumbimby on Saturday, April 3, at 3.30pm.
And, praise Heaven, it’s a free gig.
