Her remarkable score conveys Christs words deftly and passionately, and the music is both tuneful and easily prepared. Appropriate for choirs of all sizes, it offers a small orchestra accompaniment for larger choirs and an intimate instrumental reduction to accompany smaller choirs. This selection offers additional flexibility with two options for the conclusion. For Lent and Holy Week, performances can end contemplatively with the congregation singing the beloved folk hymn What Wondrous Love Is This, while an alternate triumphant chorus of Alleluias is perfect for Easter worship.
