Playlist for:
The Crucifixion

Beginning Working DRAFT
To Be Updated and Expanded


There are 20 major titled numbers in The Crucifixion. Those are composed of:

Since the Annapolis High School choirs' 1959 production was a performance, not a chruch service, the 5 congregational hymns included by Stainer for participation by chruch congregations as part of a chruch service in performances of this work for passion week services were omitted from the AHS performances.

In the list of the remaining 15 numbers, Stainer's originally intended performer of each part are shown first. (In the final version of this playlist, that will be followed by who performed that number in the AHS production.)

Robert F Kunkle, Choral Director

Marilyn Riecke, Organist

Student soloists from the choirs

Invertigate whether I can give an explanation for the order of the soloists, e.g., are they by order of first appearence??? (That should become clear when we perform the mastering. --Going on the assumption this list is by order of appearence, TortoiseClimbingAudio will assign these names to the individual solos they sang in the playlist below.) Information is not available to differentiate which of the 2 women's choirs sang which recitative.
