One of the most original octavos you will ever experience, this gem is a rugged, newly composed spiritual. Primal in its impact, the anthem conveys the journey to the cross with a heavy heart. Optional foot stomps and dropped chains suggest the burden that weighed Jesus down on the road to Calvary. The bass section is featured as well as an idiomatic solo passage creating a deeply impacting moment for worship or concert usage. Duration: ca. 3:10.
