Scored for Piano, SATB Choir

This haunting portrayal of Calvary focuses on the soldiers as they wager for Jesus’ robe, hear Him take His final breath, and stand in silent wonder at the cross. The traditional spiritual "Jacob’s Ladder" brilliantly establishes the somber mood while moving the agonizing story forward, scene by scene. The vocals are simple, lending clarity and drama to the text, and the sparse yet artful accompaniment perfectly complements the whole. (From the cantata "Come, Touch the Robe." SATB – 55/1123L; SAB – 55/1124L.)
