For SATB and soloists (soprano, tenor, and two baritones), with organ or small ensemble Chilcott's mighty setting of words from St John's Gospel is a dramatic yet optimistic re-telling of the Passiontide story. As with Bach's great Passions, the role of the Evangelist is taken by the tenor soloist, who provides a narrative throughout the work.
