Surely This Was God’s Own Son
Format: Choral Octavo
Opening with a plaintive and lone voice statement of the compelling theme, the choir soon joins to enrich this Good Friday anthem. With a loneliness and heaviness that perfectly paints the moment, the anthem yet soars with beauty and pathos. The brief (optional) a cappella section is deeply moving, as the anthem segues to a stunning Kyrie Eleison conclusion.
