The Crawford Street United Methodist Church Chancel Choir will perform “The Seven Last Words of Christ”, by Theodore Dubois on Passion/Palm Sunday, April 13.
The performance, directed by Kathy Mahloch, will begin at 10:55 a.m. in the sanctuary of the church and will include accompaniment by a full orchestra.
Soloists include soprano Clarissa Davis, tenor Thulani Mnisi and baritone Landon Scriber.
Dubois’s cantata is presented in eight movements followed by a hymn-like setting of the medieval antiphon “Ado ramus Te, Christe (Christ we do all adore thee)”, to offer the listener a preview of the Resurrection after the compelling drama of the Passion story.
The seasonal program based on the crucifixion of Jesus has been practiced in multiple churches, covering multiple denominations. The oldest settings of the account to music date to the 16th century.
At least two other churches in Vicksburg, Soul Saving M.B. and St. James No. 1, have Seven Words programs scheduled, on April 17 and 18, respectively.
