This reflective Lenten cantata by Christopher Tambling is scored for SATB choir with organ accompaniment, and with optional soprano and tenor solos. It incorporates three well-known congregational hymns, and provides some opportunities for a cappella singing by the choir.
Each of the choral movements may be used on its own, providing the choir with seven new anthems for the repertoire.
Hail Redeemer runs for about 25 minutes.
His state was divine
O Savoir of the world
Ride on, ride on in majesty!
Man born of a woman
He endured the suffering
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
When I survey the wondrous cross
Crown him with many crowns
