Words by Susan Naus Dengler, Music by Lee Dengler
Prayerful and poetic, this Good Friday offering is unforgettable. The Denglers have created an anthem which dramatically paints the picture of Jesus’s first words from the cross: “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” A rich chorale-like opening gives way to a lyrical and gently layered Kyrie eleison section…followed by a hushed closing. Beautiful and deeply moving.
