First Congregational Church in downtown Saginaw, Michigan, will mark Good Friday with a musical offering of John Stainer’s oratorio The Crucifixion: A Meditation on the Sacred Passion of the Holy Redeemer.  The twenty-movement work, which is free and open to the public, will be performed on Friday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m., in the congregation’s historic sanctuary. Composed in 1887 by one of Britain’s leaders in musical instructors and church music, The Crucifixion celebrates its one hundred twenty-fifth anniversary.
