This earnest ballad from Stuart Townend explores the infinite love of God that allowed his Son to be sacrificed for us. Larry Shackley's gentle blending of melodies and piano accompaniment brings dignity to the folk-like tune and lends this contemporary worship song a "classic" feel. A top-seller in SATB, this dynamic arrangement is now available in a new SAB version as well as a Medium Voice solo.
Especially meaningful during the days of Holy Week, this Christopher Idle text relates to our Lord praying in the garden of Gethsemane, and weaves around the 'tree' theme found in many Scriptures about the cross. Lloyd Larson's original accompaniment for piano, plus the optional flute, oboe, French horn and cello perfectly capture the somber mood. This top-seller is now available in SATB, SAB, Two-Part Mixed voicings and a new Medium Voice Solo. The SATB version appears in Lloyd's blockbuster Lenten musical, "The Shadow of the Cross," newly re-voiced for SAB choirs.
A consummately artistic yet accessible setting of the Sydney Carter classic in true Celtic style.

The Rhythm packet contains parts for: Penny Whistle, Percussion 1 & 2, Timpani and Rhythm (Bass, Guitar & Keyboard). A solo arrangement for Medium Voice in the Key of F is also available.
