"By His wounds we are healed." Calvary's sorrow and triumph are powerfully captured in this dramatic suite for Lent or Holy Week. Three beloved hymns frame the work: "Near the Cross" reassures us as we journey in the shadow of the cross; "Beneath the Cross of Jesus" calls us to bear witness once again to Christ's passion; and "I Will Sing of My Redeemer" unites us as Christians to affirm our faith in the Christ of the cross. The music is inspired, accessible, and easily prepared by choirs of all sizes, and the dramatic narrative allows for one or more readers. Approximately nine minutes in length, this suite is perfect for incorporation into regular worship and provides a brilliant dramatic alternative to longer cantatas.
