Item Number: EC.7090
Intricate SAB arrangement of PASSION CHORALE, with original treatment of each verse. A subtle key change underscores the change in tone for an inner verse. Final verse places the tune in augmentation for men's voices (with optional divisi) and ends forte on octave Gs. Text includes several stanzas not often included in hymnals.
