J. Michael Thompson turns his considerable experience and skill with Eastern liturgical music to providing four brief chants that reflect on various aspects of Christ's passion. The solemnity and beauty of the unaccompanied choral tones draw attention to the richness of these texts. The two forms of chant here originated in Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox faith communities in the farthest eastern part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. Galician chant developed north of the Carpathian Mountains, while Rusyn (or Carpatho-Rusyn) chant thrived in the smaller group living south of the mountain range. The first chant focuses on the "suffering servant". The second contrasts the "good thief" and his salvation with Adam's sin. The third recounts creation's reaction to Jesus death with an emphasis on Mary, his mother. The final chant meditates on Joseph of Arimethea's role and on the sorrow of Mary, ending with the title of this collection repeated several times in prayer.
