SATB choir
Composed by Allen Pote. Mixed Voices Series. Sacred Anthem, Holy Week. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (CG.CGA871).

Item Number: CG.CGA871

A haunting modal melody interspersed with occasional harmonic dissonance paints the image of Christ's agony at Gethsemane where he implores "this cup may pass from me." Especially appropriate on Holy (Maundy) Thursday, this Gospel portrait begins with a solo or unison description of the scene and climaxes with a four-part chorus pleading that "this hour may pass." An intensely moving selection for any Lenten service.
