Pepper Choplin dramatically captures the emotion of Holy Week with this mesmerizing choral round that vividly describes the removal of Christ from the cross and His burial in the tomb. Based on the timeless American hymn "By the Waters of Babylon" by William Billings, this piece features multiple accompaniment options that lend to a truly moving performance.

    We have especially enjoyed this arrangement of this William Billings piece. It is effective for even the small, volunteer choir. Once the melody is learned, every section can shine!

    A very moving piece that is easily prepared and presented by a fairly small volunteer choir. We plan to use it at our Maundy Thursday service. The message transcends the ages!
