Stations is a fourteen-movement work for solo piano inspired by the Catholic devotion of the Stations of the Cross – a narrative in fourteen scenes that relates to the events leading from Christ’s death sentence to his entombment. It was written for Matthew Schellhorn between 2006–07.

The work is divided into four Books and each Book is also performable as a separate entity. Matthew Schellhorn gave the world premiere of each Book separately between 2007 and 2008 and also gave the first complete performances of the work in 2009.

Recordings took place in the Curtis Auditorium, Cork School of Music, between Wednesday 1 June and Friday 3 June 2011, and the disc is due to be released later this year.
