This ensemble composition features an "atmosphere creating" introduction in the lower registers of bass clarinet, piano, cello and viola with an under-stated artistry. It seeks to capture the devious character of Judas, the betrayer, as a false disciple who used to rob from the ministry funds (John 12:6). It then moves into the Lord Jesus' recognition of him as His betrayer and Judas's "evil deal" with the Pharisees. The work culminates in 30 treble piano notes which represent the 30 pieces of silver which Judas received for betraying Jesus. The final cadence represents Judas's suicide as "the son of perdition." As performers you will enjoy: (1.) creating the atmosphere, (2.) the subtle nuances in the dynamics and phraseology, (3.) the understated and yet dramatic bass clarinet, flute and violin melodies, (4.) the use of harmonics in the violin and the poignant closing section within which the piano melody grips the listener.
