This powerful new anthem is indescribably beautiful. The unusual title is taken from the famous masterpiece of artist Michelangelo. His sculpture shows Mary holding the slain Jesus in her arms. Three scenes from Mary's life carry us through a mother's sorrow and give us a moving portrait of grace. This is ideal for Christmas candlelight observances, Marian festivals, or during Holy week. Anytime our thoughts take us beyond the manger to the cross, “Pietà” will be an unforgettable moment.
