Strathclyde University Chamber Choir is one of Scotland’s leading amateur choirs, with a unique and varied repertoire. It was founded in 1980 by the distinguished conductor and scholar Alan Tavener who, two years later, also founded professional choir Cappella Nova. The choir flourished under his leadership ever since and has commissioned new works by composers including Toby Young and Sir James MacMillan.
John Stainer’s ‘meditation on the sacred passion of the Holy Redeemer’ has been a firm favourite with choirs for over 130 years. It tells the story of Christ’s crucifixion through a sequence of choruses, recitatives and arias in a structure similar to Bach’s Passions. Written for liturgical use, with five hymns for congregational participation, it is now frequently performed as a concert piece.
