Notes & Reviews:

Charles Wood made an important contribution to Anglican church music, with liturgical settings that remain part of cathedral choral repertoire. Answering a request from Eric Milner-White, the then Dean of King's College, Cambridge, Wood completed his setting of the St Mark Passion in August 1920. As with J.S. Bach's inclusion of Lutheran chorales in his St John Passion, here the flow of the biblical narrative in English, interspersed with well-known hymns for choir and congregation, provides the key to the work's success.
