This week on Going Beyond Words and ACDA Radio/ChoralNet, host Stan Schmidt goes back into his archives for a program that was aired on Palm Sunday, April 17, 2011.
Along with the two very popular motets by Orlando Gibbons and Thomas Weelkes, you will hear the following:
- “Hosanna to the Song of David,” performed by the Voices of Ascension and the Trinity College Choir, Cambridge
- The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir will grace the program with the Sanctus and the Crucifixus from Bach’s B Minor Mass
- Barbara Hendricks offers the spiritual “Ride on King Jesus”

- “Osanna” from August Söderman’s “Mass” with the Swedish Radio Choir
- Daniel Gawthrop’s wonderful Lenten gem “Watch with Me,” performed by the Utah State University Singers
The program continues with:
- “Song of Divine Love” by Grayston Ives
- Mozart’s Ave verum corpus with Ricardo Muti leading the Swedish Radio and Stockholm Chamber Choir
- “The Lord’s Prayer” by William Wiedrich, sung by the University of South Florida
- One of the Tenebrae Responsories by Healey Willan
- A gripping arrangement by Moses Hogan of the spiritual “He Never Said a Mumbalin’ Word,” sung by Male Soprano Darryl Taylor
- The famous “Crucifixus” by Antonio Lotti, led by Paul Halley
- “Who Has Struck You Thus,” one of the chorales from J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion offered by the Netherlands Bach Society.
All in all a very thoughtful look at the great ride into Jerusalem and the Passion of Christ.
