WAGNER - Shawnee Press
Publisher Desc. For use during Lent and Holy Week, the solemnity of the season is vividly represented by And No Bird Sang. Clearly describing the scene on Calvary, calm was the wind and dark was the sky, the epitome of this melancholy setting is that no bird sang. This one thought captures the despair of the crucifixion. Tremendously well-received when first published in 1983, Douglas Wagner's acute sensitivity expressed through the text and accompaniment have resulted in a musical masterpiece. Profoundly affecting.
