Man of Sorrows

Bandmaster Jim Black was requested to provide a musical treatment of the old hymn "Man of Sorrows". The composition heard here tries to capture the depth of the loneliness and rejection our Savior must have felt on our behalf. However, being Easter the last verse triumphantly echoes the words:

"When He comes our glorious King
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we'll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!"

The piece begins and ends with a quote from "Maccabeus" - "Thine is the glory, risen, conquering Son!"

[Note: unfortunately, since our recording levels were set for vocals, much of the band volume "overpowers" the recording leading to some distortion! Still, we hope you get a feel for our Easter worship!]
