Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)

Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)

Teresa Young‘s setting of the haunting Lenten traditional Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord) is for one or more soloists and piano. The arrangement is rubato and meditative, but tension rises throughout, as each of four verses ascends a half-step. The resulting rigor and intensity make multiple soloists a practical and compelling approach.
