(A Service Of Tenebrae)
Douglas Wagner - Lorenz Corporation
This service of worship dramatizes the events of Jesus' last hours as it attempts to recapture those solemn and sacred moments. These seven meditations focus on the seven episodes in the Passion and Death of Our Lord. Douglas Wagner's original choral music is by turns, passionate, dynamic, and devotional. Congregational responsive readings and scriptural references also become a part of this exceptional observance. Throughout the service, the interwoven themes of grief, penitence, pity and forgiveness provide the backdrop to the central meaning of this holy season for all Christians. Performance time 20-25 minutes.
