Program Notes

Crown of Thorns is a musical "description" that takes the listener on Jesus Christ's journey from the last supper, through Judas Iscariot's betrayal, abduction by Roman soldiers, judgment under Pontius Pilate, the crown of thorns, the procession to the cross, and finally His ascension into heaven. Though modern tones are used, the piece reflects chord structures and flavors reminiscent of the period.
