6.75x10.5 inches. Joseph M. Martin/orch. Brant Adams.

From the highly successful Lenten cantata, Colors of Grace, comes an invitation to reflect at the foot of the cross, to kneel in its shadow, to mourn the dying Christ, and to find rest in the promise of salvation. Come to the Cross is rich in powerful imagery, swelling to an emotional Kyrie eleison; after each remembrance of Calvary. And in the middle of all the drama and chaos surrounding his death, words of unending love, Father, forgive them...; is heard with haunting clarity and purity. Come to the Cross will be incredibly powerful during Lent or Holy Week, and an especially poignant moment for Good Friday.

    Come to the Cross has become a favorite of my church's choir. We performed this during our Easter celebration and the whole congregation loved it.
