In the same tradition as his popular A FESTIVAL OF LESSONS AND CAROLS, Hopson has fashioned another service of worship for that most solemn time of the church year, Holy Week. Hopson's service of Tenebrae follows a tradition of the early church dating back to the eighth century, and commemorates the final hours of Christ's life on earth as He prepared for and suffered death on the cross. TENEBRAE: A SERVICE OF DARKNESS is scored for SATB choir and congregation with organ and optional oboe. Separate scores are available for oboe, string quartet or quintet, or a full string orchestra. A congregational part is also available, which incorporates the readings and prayers of the service as well as those hymns sung by the congregation itself. As with his Lessons and Carols, TENEBRAE: A SERVICE OF DARKNESS may be performed as a service in its entirety, or portions of the work may be extracted and performed separately throughout Holy Week. This exceptionally moving work is destined to become a staple in Holy Week repertoire for decades to come. (more) TENEBRAE: A SERVICE OF DARKNESS includes: PRELUDE (optional) O SACRED HEAD, NOW WOUNDED - Choir and Congregation ALL WHO PASS THIS WAY (Kum Ba Yah) - Choir and Congregation THE CUP OF LOVE - Choir and Congregation COULD YOU NOT WATCH - Choir and Congregation AH, HOLY JESUS - Choir and Congregation CRUCIFY HIM! - Choir only WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS - Choir and Congregation WERE YOU THERE - Choir only (more) Components: GB9901 Choral Score (SATB) $6.95 GB9901OB Oboe Score $5.00 GB9901Q String Quartet/Quintet $50.00 (includes: Conductor's Score, 1 Violin I, 1 Violin II, 1 Viola, 2 Cello/Bass) GB9901SO String Orchestra $75.00 (includes: Conductor's Score, 8 Violin I, 8 Violin II, 5 Viola, 5 Cello/Bass) (more) GB9901CP Congregational Part (Pack of 50 bulletins) $14.95 GB9901CD Listening CD $10.95
