'Choral Sentences for Holy Week and Easter' includes four "choral pictures" suitable as introits or short anthems. Palm Sunday- patient, plodding donkey carrying Jesus into Jerusalem; Maundy Thursday-prayerful petition; Good- plaintive melody with mournful accompaniment; Easter- women trudging to the tomb only to discover that Christ has risen! Based on PETERSFIELD (Harmonia Sacra, 1832), 'Savior, Prince of Israel's Race' has open harmonies with Sopranos and Tenors singing melody, reflectin early American compositional/singing style. The premise of 'Mary Wept' shows the strength of Mary in the adversity she suffered on Good Friday. Smith's 'Easter,' an arrangement of Ralph Vaughan Wiliam's composition, is a quiet and sensitive Easter anthem. Crisafulli's 'Come Away to the Skies' is a beautiful piece. Each stanza has a different setting. Useful throughout Easter season! "A" sections of 'I Am the Resurrection' feature rhythmic repetition of title. Reflective "B" section includes homophonic and polyphonic writing of Christ's promise: "Whoever lives and believes in me will never die."
