This haunting Palm Sunday (or Good Friday) anthem tells the story of the procession into Jerusalem from one of the crowd, who begins to question what they are seeing, and then questions us "What are you laying down?". The music is soulful with a modern gospel feel, and features a soloist (or various soloists) throughout the piece, while the choir builds with each verse, until the triumphant ending which exhorts us to "lay down your pride, He comes!". Added chords make it easy to add guitar to the accompaniment. Arranged for Soloist(s) + SAB (3-part mixed choir) Approx performance time 2:45.
