Hayes crafts a beautiful, haunting melody to set this deeply moving text by John Parker, communicating the message of the words so effectively through its minor modality and even eighth-note rhythms. Parker’s text personalizes the crucifixion experience as the choir both grieves and praises the sacrifice of Christ on the cross as though present at that event.

Hayes crafts a beautiful, haunting melody to set this deeply moving text by John Parker, communicating the message of the words so effectively through its minor modality and even eighth-note rhythms. Parker’s text personalizes the crucifixion experience as the choir both grieves and praises the sacrifice of Christ on the cross as though present at that event. Hayes contrasts the quiet melody of the verses with a powerful bridge that expresses gratitude for Jesus’ sacrifice and leads to an echo section on the words “Kyrie eleison” – Lord have mercy. The piece ends as it began – poignantly, providing a perfect moment for introspection and prayer. The oboe part is included in the choral score, and the instrumental part is a wonderful addition. Accessible musically to any choir, this anthem is an excellent choice for the Easter season, especially a tenebrae service.
