This well-crafted, reflective anthem for Lent or Holy Week gives much opportunity to work with interpretation and subtlety. The choir will need to strive to sing cleanly to deliver the text. The notes, rhythms, and ranges are all modest in their demands. This anthem works most beautifully when it is not treated as being overly sentimental. There are many emotional contrasts which, once discovered, will help the choir to give great dimension and meaning to the piece.
