“A Purple Robe” will find use throughout Holy Week celebrations. The poignant text is a meditation on the passion and death of Christ. A dramatic piano part supports the anguish of the text. Generous use of unison and two-part texture makes the piece easier to learn in the midst of musical preparation for Holy Week and Easter.
