John Stainer was considered to be one of the most distinguished musicians of his generation and yet his Crucifixion continues to divide critics sharply. Stainer's purpose in composing The Crucifixion cantata was to create a meditation on the passion of Christ but on a scale that made it accessible to most parish choirs and which encouraged participation by the whole congregation. Its enduring popularity is a testament to its success.
