The Cross of Christ - a double devotion
The choirs of St Mary's, Richmond and the Stanwick Group of Churches (Aldbrough St John, Forcett and Melsonby) sing The Cross of Christ , a devotion for congregation and choir, on Good Friday in St James, Melsonby at 10.00am and in St Mary's, Richmond at 7.00pm.
A series of readings foretells the crucifixion and is followed by accounts of Christ’s betrayal, trial, crucifixion, death and eventual triumph. The readings are interspersed with anthems and congregational hymns.
Both choirs have been trained and will be directed by Chris Denton, organist and choirmaster of St Mary’s whose wife, Revd. Camilla Campling-Denton is Vicar of the Stanwick Group of Churches.
