6.75x10.5 inches.

A new perspective on the final words of Christ is visited in this pensive offering. The Greek phrase spoken on the cross translated as “It is finished” was often used in business transactions of Biblical times, meaning “paid in full.” The poignant realization is the heart of this bittersweet Holy Week anthem. Incorporating the sad “Solveig's Song” theme and the sorrowful strains of the well-known ABERYSTWYTH hymn are masterful touches.
