It portrays the emotional turmoil of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane prior to his crucifixion. Choral score in German with piano accompaniment. Translation to English included in preface. Includes: Introduction * O Father, O my Father * All my soul within me shudders * Now tremble, nature * Praise the Redeemer's goodness * Oh, Triumph, all ye ransom'd * Canst though, O Seraph, now declare * On me, then, fall Thy heavy judgment * Then welcome, death * We surely here shall find him * Behold him * Not unchastised * Mine inmost heart is burning * Haste! And seize upon the traitor * All my pain will soon be over * Hallelujah.
