from Considering Matthew Shepard

Series: Craig Hella Johnson Series Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Octavo SATB divisi Composer: Craig Hella Johnson Author: Michael Dennis Browne

This product has a minimum order quantity of five copies.

From the major work Considering Matthew Shepard, this is a song of comfort for Matthew's mother. As a stand alone piece it can be sung in a variety of contexts--general concert, holiday programs, memorial services. Conspirare performed this work for the interment service of Matthew at the National Cathedral where his ashes were laid to rest. The lilting 7/8 meter creates a feeling of rocking, of cradling. The violin solo represents a halo of light and took its original inspiration from the profoundly beautiful violin solo in Erbarme dich from Bach's St Matthew Passion.
