'Jesus Died On Calvary's Mountain' is a plaintive American folk-tune. It has a poignant 3-stanza setting with different vocal texture for each stanza. 'A Nobler Life' is a straight-forward chorale style setting combining two Thomas Kingo texts. 'Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days' is an easily remembered new "American" tune. The melody is shared by men and women's voices in alternating stanzas of this Lenten anthem. Comfortably performable by a small or larger choir with optional solo. Written for the National Lutheran Choir, 'A Lenton Meditation' is a simple, yet lovely treatment of the familiar Johann Heermann hymn. The piece begins with the fourth stanza (For me, kind Jesus?) which quickly brings the listener to the heart of this beautiful text. The change in stanza sequence has a powerful affect in giving a meaningful new interpretation of this hymn.
