Detailed Description

The Crown and the Cross (A Palm/Passion Sunday Suite). Composed by Mark Hayes. For SAB choir and piano (with optional narrator, congregation, instrumental accompaniment). Worship Works Series. Sacred Anthem, Holy Week, Palm/Palm-Passion Sunday. Choral octavo. Duration 9 minutes. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-3828L).

This music drama is approximately nine minutes in length and is perfect for incorporation into regular worship on Palm/Passion Sunday. John Parker's inspired narrative opens the work with shouts of "Hosanna!" as Jesus enters Jerusalem. Mark Hayes's score enters with growing intensity, and the choir sings a triumphant anthem of praise. The mood changes during the first interlude, as the high priests plot against Jesus, and the music beautifully underscores the scripture-based narrative. The second chorus conveys the scene at the Last Supper with haunting melodies and a lyrically flowing accompaniment. The mood of the following interlude is one of steadfast faith, quoting the hymn "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." Its narrative is inspired by Philippians 2:5-11. The final chorus is a majestic yet reflective affirmation of faith in praise to Jesus, Who was faithful to His final breath.
