Music plays a powerful role in proclaiming the word of God.  The late Father Chrysogonus, who was a Trappist monk at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky, devoted more than fifty years to composing fitting music for these hallowed texts.  This set of psalms for Holy Week has been constructed with beautiful yet accessible melodies and harmonies and demonstrates first-hand the compositional expertise and sensitivity of this respected composer.  The refrains are cantor/SATB, the verses are set in chant style--ideal for cantor or choir.
