** Stanton’s Staff Selection - 2008 **
From the writers of Song of the Shadows and Harvest of Sorrows comes this profoundly moving work for Holy Week. The Weeping Tree is a poignant portrait of the cross that uses beloved hymns, newly composed music, thoughtful narration, and simple sacred symbols to create a touching testament of grace for choirs of every size. By offering the smaller orchestral accompaniment option along with the shorter performance time, The Weeping Tree is accessible to choirs that have not previously included cantatas in their Lenten and Holy Week services. Includes: The Weeping Tree • Without His Cross • Of Tears and Sorrows • Alas and Did My Savior Bleed • and more. Practical and profoundly affecting!
