Optional alto solo; dramatic melody for a favorite hymn text
Craig Curry has masterfully reworked this beloved hymn with a dramatic melody and accompaniment. Opening with an optional alto solo and gradually adding voices with each verse, the changes in texture and color are rich, indeed, and the effect is very moving. “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” is such an important hymn throughout the church year. Try this wistful arrangement during Lent or for your next communion service.
