The Glory of the Cross composed by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir, piano. Sacred Anthem, General, Holy Week, Lent. Octavo. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.10-4077L).
This tender original anthem references two beloved hymn texts, "Beneath the Cross of Jesus" and "Depth of Mercy." Accessible vocals and a gently flowing accompaniment filled with lush harmonies gradually build to a climax. The closing strains proclaim the glory of the cross and the ultimate gift of Jesus' sacrifice.
