*** The Stations of the Cross is a form of devotion that originated with fourth century pilgrims, who would retrace Jesus’ journey from Pilate’s house to Golgotha. The traditional form of the fourteen depictions of the Passion was established in the nineteenth century. It is a journey of imaginative recollection and prayers.
These fourteen prayers (all sung to the same music) were composed for Holy Week 1997 in Southampton City Centre Anglican Parish. The hymn-tune WILTEM was composed on the day the church commemorates Archbishop William Temple (1881-1944).Stations-of-the-Cross
