Stations of the Cross with the music of Seven Last Words
Seven Meditations on the Last Words of Christ from the Cross
We are fortunate indeed that our parish has committed itself over the past years to the creation of new works of religious art which enable us to express our prayer. Recently these commissions have included a setting of the Requiem Mass (William Hawley) and an Easter motet ‘Alleluia’ (David Conte) and settings of the Advent ‘O’ Antiphons for organ.
As the dedication suggests, the Seven Meditations was commissioned to commemorate the life of Claxton Allen Long, a young man who left this earth prematurely, by his mother, Syida Long. The music was first performed on Good Friday, 2011. The composer is Robert Chastain.
