Your congregation will be transported from the very first measure of this beautiful setting of the traditional spiritual, "Were You There?" Larry Shackley's meditative keyboard accompaniment invokes quiet awe at the scene of our Lord's crucifixion, and his brilliant use of triple meter gives it a compelling flow. The choir's gentle entrance gradually swells into the refrain, "Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble!" The soul of the believer will swell in response to this extraordinary arrangement for Lent, Holy Week and Passion/Palm Sunday. Available in 2 voicings.
