Our Good Friday meditation on the Crucifixion with pictures and music is based on the second movement of Gorecki's second symphony. The Latin words starting "Deo qui fecit coelo et terra" O God who made heaven and earth are by Copernicus and extol the beauty of the heavens, created by God, who died on the cross for our salvation.
As a longer alternative you might want to watch Kirk Haberman's Passion according to St Mark's Gospel. This covers the whole Passion story beginning with the Last Supper and is based around Charles Wood's St Mark Passion in which recitative gospel passages are interspersed with hymns sung by the choir of Jesus College, Cambridge.
Our Maundy Thursday service would normally be held at 7.30 pm in St. Edmund's church. The text of the service may be downloaded from our documents page.
