The Seven Last Words of Christ

By Francois Clement Theodore Dubois

SATB choir, organ
Composed by Francois Clement Theodore Dubois (1837-1924). Arranged by Hal H. Hopson. Choral, cantatas. Holy Week, Sacred. Choral score. Laurel Press #55/1076LA. Published by Laurel Press (LO.55-1076LA).

Item Number: LO.55-1076LA

The editor of this edition has artfully retained all the drama and poignancy of Dubois's original work. The solo and choral parts are exactly as Dubois wrote them with incidental rhythmic alterations indicated to accommodate the new English translation provided by the editor. The flexibility is derived from the various options available for accompanying the work. It may be effectively performed with: organ alone--a new, organist-friendly transcription of the orchestration is provided in the choral score; organ and flute A (30/1849LA), harp, and timpani; organ and flute B (30/1816LA), oboe, harp, and timpani; a chamber orchestra of strings, flute A and B, oboe, harp, timpani, and a separate and distinct organ part (30/1825LA), and conductor's score (30/1815LA). Made practical with its variety of solid accompaniment alternatives, this pragmatic edition assures an inspirationally compelling rendition of a masterwork well within the choral grasp of most church choirs. PERF. TIME: 45 MIN.

    I sang this contata at a Lutheran Junior College in Wahoo Nebraska in 1943 and 1944. We had a tenor who sang to B-flat and a baritone who sang to F. We were great and the audiences loved out program.
