A Purple Robe, A Crown of Thorn

By Lloyd Larson & Charles H. Gabriel

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/a-purple-robe-a-crown-of-thorn-sheet-music/20031462

SATB choir
Composed by Lloyd Larson & Charles H. Gabriel. Lent, Holy Week. Choral octavo. 12 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.C5940).

Item Number: HP.C5940

Text by Timothy Dudley-Smith & Charles H. Gabriel. Scriptural Reference: John 19:2.

This powerful yet contemplative text for Holy Week comes from the master hymn writer, Timothy Dudley-Smith, and is set with all of the deserved emotion to a new melody for SATB choir by Lloyd Larson. The journey to the cross is expressed with emotional phrases that parallel poetically: "I see my Savior stand; I see my Savior go; I see my Savior die; I sing my Savior's name.".

    Our choir performed this throughout Lent. The choir and congregation enjoyed the music very much. The violin part can be substituted with either flute or alto recorder. Recommended.
