The Crown And The Cross Composed by Hayes/Parker. For SATB. Published by Lorenz Corporation. (Catalog # 10/3827L, UPC: 9781429105361)

This music drama is approximately nine minutes in length and is perfect for incorporation into regular worship on Palm/Passion Sunday. John Parkers inspired narrative opens the work with shouts of Hosanna! as Jesus enters Jerusalem. Mark Hayess score enters with growing intensity, and the choir sings a triumphant anthem of praise. The mood changes during the first interlude, as the high priests plot against Jesus, and the music beautifully underscores the scripture-based narrative. The second chorus conveys the scene at the Last Supper with haunting melodies and a lyrically flowing accompaniment. The mood of the following interlude is one of steadfast faith, quoting the hymn All Hail the Power of Jesus Name. Its narrative is inspired by Philippians 2:511. The final chorus is a majestic yet reflective affirmation of faith in praise to Jesus, Who was faithful to His final breath.
