When Jesus Wept, the famous, exquisite round by the first well-known American composer, William Billings, is found in this setting with a new keyboard accompaniment. One iteration of the tune features an interesting accompaniment of a repeated figure in the men's voices echoing one of the earliest known rounds, Sumer Is Icumen In. Especially appropriate for Lent and for Holy Week.
