The St Jude’s Singers and soloists will sing John Henry Maunder’s Cantata “Olivet to Calvary” in St Jude’s Church Bowral on Sunday 4 March commencing at 3.00pm. Composed in 1904, Olivet to Calvary was performed regularly by choirs throughout the UK and Australia but it went out of fashion in the latter part of the 20th century. Recent years have seen a resurgence in the number of performances of this work which recalls “some of the incidents in the last days of the Saviour’s life on earth.” It has been described as “a fine example of music written for the late Victorian/early Edwardian Anglican church” which is “well-written and thoroughly musical and devotional in feeling”.
