SATB, a cappella

Drawing on sacred choral traditions through the centuries, Timothy Shaw has fashioned this penetrating a cappella arrangement of a timeless Lenten hymn. The setting relies on the beauty of drone, parallel fifths, and layered vocal lines to present a pensive look at Christ’s suffering, and the deeply personal confession repeated through the text.

Tune: “Herzliebster Jesu”
