Weep, Mother Mary by Lee Dengler. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, Holy Week. Octavo. Published by Laurel Press (LO.10-3545LA).
The depth of emotion Mary must have felt while helplessly watching her Son perish on the cross is fully exhibited in the graphic text and emotion-laden music expressed in this anthem for Holy Week. Using a comfortably sung mixed meter, this piece will create that unexplainable but palpable silence at its conclusion.
