The Cross

By Craig Courtney

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/the-cross-sheet-music/31904?ac=1

SATB choir
Composed by Craig Courtney. Sacred. Octavo. Published by Beckenhorst Press (BP.1526).

Item Number: BP.1526

The cross of Christ is not only a fact of history, it is also a symbol of God's saving grace, our spiritual poverty, the fulfillment of Old Testament law and the "One acquainted with grief", among other things. Pamela Martin's beautiful text and Craig Courtney's simple melody give us the opportunity to express the centrality of the cross in our lives as Christians. An optional text is also provided for use as a choral benediction.

    This is one of the most hauntingly beautiful pieces I've ever heard. Every time I hear it, it moves me to tears.

    This piece has been in my choir's repertoire for many years, and each time we sing it during the Lenten season, it touches more people's hearts. And as I move to different positions, I always add it to the new choir's repertoire. Truly inspiring and life-changing...

    for many people.
