A moving choral lamentation for the crucified Christ is presented in this anthem for Good Friday. From the shadows of Golgotha, this poignant paean weeps with emotion through expressive music and cries of “Kyrie Eleison.” The anthem is dependent on two soloists that soar above the dramatic choral. The classic chorale “Ah, Holy Jesus” is a sensitive ending to the piece.
