    A "bass cantata" sounds very interesting; I am going to find and listen to this right now. Thanks, Pugg.

    P.S. It IS on Amazon Music Unlimited US!

    It irks me to admit that I've never paid Stainer's Crucifixion much attention, but I'm glad I've finally "discovered" it, thanks to this recording I bought yesterday:

    Stainer - Crucifixion.jpg

    Beautiful singing from soloists and choir alike, crystal-clear diction too. A fine recording of a lovely work.

    I'm no doubt less familiar with sacred music than even with other forms of "classical", but I have yet to encounter an organ work of Bach or Mendelssohn that I don't love. I have not made myself listen to the entirety of The Passion of St. Matthew or Paulus (their length seems daunting to me...), but those are supposed to be great compositions.

    Paulus is a bit more accessible but once you got in to the St. Matthew Pasion, you er hooked.
