The shadows of Gethsemane fall upon the Savior in this moving tableau taken from the celebrated cantata, The Rose of Calvary. This pivotal moment in the life of Christ is presented with impassioned poetic music and infused with an emotive harmonic language that frames the words: “Father, let Thy will be done.” The final resolution as Jesus rises to do His Father's will is truly memorable.
