Composed by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1625).
Item Number: BP.1625
Beginning with a bass ostinato and staccato eighth notes, this four-hand accompaniment has a growing tension that never ceases until the final note. It is, however, J. M. C. Crum's use of wheat as a metaphor for Christ's death and resurrection that sets this apart as a truly unique anthem for the Easter Season. An accompaniment CD (BP.1625CD) designed for practice and performance is also available for purchase.
