Holy Week Music: God So Loved the World

Holy Week Music: God So Loved the World

For Holy Week, the St George’s Singers bring you a performance of ‘God so loved the world’ which is part of a larger work called ‘The Crucifixion’ by the English composer and organist John Stainer (1840-1901). The lyrics are inspired by John 3:16-17.

God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whoso believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world
to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.

As we are still unable to sing together due to ongoing restrictions, the St George’s Singers all practised and recorded individually from their homes and venues around Barcelona. Sherry is pictured in front of the Sagrada Familia.

We hope you enjoy it!

Watch the performance by clicking on the video below or go to the St George’s YouTube channel.

As a deer longs for springs of water,
so my soul longs for you, O God.
