Scenes from a Solemn Cross by Douglas Nolan and J. Paul Williams. For Choral (SATB). Harold Flammer. Choral. 8 pages. Shawnee Press #A7971. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35019140).
Paul Williams has never written better than in this introspective poem and with Douglas Nolan's quiescent musical approach, this Holy Week anthem will be an exceptional choice during the season of shadows. Williams's vivid portrait of grace is perfectly suited for Maundy Thursday or, more specifically, Good Friday commemorations. Breathtaking!
