This mournful anthem brings into focus the moments immediately following the crucifixion. Like a dirge, this somber song allows us to grieve along with the faithful who witnessed Christ's death on the cross. A simple rising line forms a respectful melody that carries the weight of this dramatic moment, and the flowing piano part invokes the bitter winds of Calvary. The piece ends in whispers, leaving the worshipper to await for the arrival of Easter's alleluias. Intense!
