"The veil of the temple was ripped in two and all the earth trembled." So goes the translation of the first line of this Latin text for Good Friday. Paul Nicholson has set these words to great effect for four-part a cappella choir, displaying great skill in the art of text painting. The piece is also a vehicle for a nuanced concert performance.
