Jay Althouse. Matthew 27:27-47, Mark 15:16-34.
Ideal for Good Friday or any service during Lent, this powerful original from Jay Althouse tells of Jesus on the cross and builds to his final plea, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Featuring a haunting melody, accessible, straightforward voice parts, and an optional, reproducible part for clarinet, which is included in the anthem -- a poignant addition to any Holy Week service.
