Reger's cantata for Good Friday, based on the famous Passion hymn by Paul Gerhardt, was composed in 1904 and belongs to a group with 4 further choral cantatas-Reger's independent and most comprehensive contribution to a key family of protestant church music. The Carus edition of these works is intended to make Reger's choral cantatas accessible for musical practice and musicological reasearch for the first time in a modern critical edition. In order to encourage the spread of Reger's choral works in the anglo-saxon countries, a singable English translation has been added.Score available separately - see item CA.5040300.
