Scripture: Matthew 26:36-48; Mark 14:32-42; Luke 22:39-46
A haunting minor tonality, easy lilting triple meter, and very accessible melodic movement allows the descriptive text to take prominence in this Maundy Thursday anthem. Choirs appreciate the sensitive dynamics that grow as the harmonies become larger when Jesus expresses his exhaustion on this night. “not my will, but Yours be done”. A powerful easy addition to Holy Week.
