One of the most dramatic pieces you will ever encounter is found in this scene from the passion of Christ before Pilate. From the powerful martial opening theme depicting the Roman inquisition to the fugue that displays the violence and cacophony of the mob's cries, this anthem is unrelenting in its impact. A difficult moment to translate into music but an important moment to experience because it reminds of the price of grace!
