Psalm 22, Psalm 31, Matthew 5:4, Matthew 27:32-50, Mark 15:21-37, Luke 23:26-47, John 19:17-37, James 4:7-10, Revelation 21:4.

This dramatic reflection upon the scene at Calvary opens as a quiet invocation (opt. solo), calling believers to the cross to mourn their Savior. Beautiful text images, a haunting melody, and a flowing accompaniment combine to create a compelling picture. Then, the choir sings a free, expressive choral prayer (opt. a cappella), based upon the traditional tune, Wayfaring Stranger, paired with Frederick Faber’s 19th century hymn text, O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile. The opening reverie returns to close with a sense of hushed wonder. Highly recommended!

    Wonderful but do wish one could hear the transition into "Wayfaring Stranger" and back to O Come and Mourn.
