Allan Beavis (Director)
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”.

Good Friday 30 . . . 5.30pm “St Luke Passion” (J S Bach) St Jude’s Singer & Soloists
This work, to be presented in St Jude's Church Bowral on Good Friday, is a narration of the Passion of Jesus as contained in the Gospel of St Luke. It is a moving account of Jesus’ arrest, trial and crucifixion interspersed with some of the great chorales of the Lutheran Church. It is not certain that Bach actually composed this work. Although extant in Bach’s hand, it is not of the same scale as his well-know “St Matthew” and “St John” Passions and may well have been copied by him for presentation on Good Friday in 1730. If Bach did not compose it, he certainly thought enough of the work to write it out for performance! The performance in St Jude's is being presented by the St Jude’s Singers (Director and Harpsichord: Allan Beavis) with David Allen (Evangelist), Christopher Bambach (Christus), Melinda Richardson (Soprano), Kim Stewart (Organ) and Catherine Barnett (Cello).
