The epic moments surrounding the crucifixion are portrayed in vivid poetry and dramatic music with this creative effort. The theatre of the Word is evident in this poignant tableau as the voices and instruments deliver a powerful score suggesting the horror of the Savior's death. The dotted rhythms and crushing harmonic language of the piece confront us even as they transport us to that ancient hill of suffering. Quoting “O Sacred Head, Now Wounded” in its final moments, this piece not only honors the dying Savior, but reminds us of the life that is ours through His sacrifice. Includes Violin and Cello parts.
