Filled with emotion! This is an extraordinary pairing of cherished old music (the Passion chorale, "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded") with haunting new music that creates an unforgettable picture of our Lord at His crucifixion: "The dove was wounded. / O sacred head now wounded." When the two melodies partner, one phrase responding to another, it is simply heartrending! For Holy Week, Lent, Palm/Passion Sunday or Christ the King. Suggested scriptures: Psalm 22, Matthew 27: 11-54, Mark 15: 1-39, Luke 23: 1-47, John 18: 28-19: 37.
