Psalm 22, Matthew 27:32-54, Mark 15:21-39, Luke 23:26-47, John 19:17-30, Galatians 6:11-15.

This inspired setting of Lowell Mason’s beloved 19th century hymn employs 3/4 meter rather than 4/4, thereby infusing it with a highly expressive, flowing feeling that sings itself! Rich harmonies and a lyric accompaniment are signature touches of celebrated arranger Stan Pethel.

    I only ordered the 2-part arrangement of this piece because the SATB arrangement is out of print now. Very sad to lose that because this song was my favorite choir Easter number. The 2-part arrangement is too simplistic and not enough vocal meatyness to it. I had sung...

    the 4-part before, so I knew the alto part and had to write it in to give it more deapth. Very disappointing. Would only order this if your choir is very young and lacks the ability to do more or even adults who do not have too much musical training. However, it is still a beautiful melody.
