At the Cross

for mixed chorus and piano

AT THE CROSS is a simple arrangement of the beloved hymn with fresh and poignant harmonies. Set for SATB choir with piano accompaniment, it is moderately easy but rewarding of good musicianship. The light, delicate accompaniment directs the focus onto the text while providing the perfect amount of color and interest. It allows a choir to show artistic merit without enduring exhaustive preparation.
AT THE CROSS adapts the refrain Ralph Hudson appended to Isaac Watts verse to reflect the reality that Christians are acquainted with difficulty, but rest secure in a comforting shepherd.
