In the Cross of Christ I Glory composed by Paul Lindsley Thomas. For SATB choir, keyboard. Lent, Easter. Moderately Easy. Octavo. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.50-3049).
John Bowring's beautiful text is combined with a original hymn tune melody by the composer. The anthem presents a bold version of the stirring text and is appropriate for the Lent/Easter season or for General use. The piece begins with the first stanza set in unison with alternation between the women and men. The second stanza is a cappella and is followed by a climactic thired stanza with soprano descant.
