"Father, it is finished." Jesus' ardent, haunting prayer at his crucifixion is the inspiration for this compelling anthem for Lent, Palm/Passion Sunday or Holy Week. The simple 2-note "Father" motive is heard first in the accompaniment, then the vocals. It is the historic "cry" of our Lord's passion and suffering. Your choir will adore singing this one! Suggested scriptures: Psalm 22, Luke 22: 41-44 and 23: 44-46, John 14: 25-31, 16: 16-33 and chapters 17-19.
