When I Survey the Wondrous Cross composed by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). Arranged by Hal H. Hopson. For SATB choir, unison women's voices or unison treble voices, piano. Holy Week/Three Days, Lent. Medium. Octavo. 7 pages. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.50-8620).
The great Isaac Watts text that is so associated with the Lenten season is given a passionate expression in this new combination of text and tune. The melody is by Giuseppi Verdi and is both romantic and expressive. A wonderful new treatment of this great hymn.
