I forgot I had briefly (and lazily) blogged about this piece. FWIW.

Great piece.

My favorite thing about Lent is these heavy-duty pieces. I find more than small similarity with this and some darker Black Sabbath pieces. Think it's in the tri-tone intervals. Not easy to sing.

I wish your supertitle-ist the best of luck with finding a translation that won't raise too many eyebrows. What's there is what's there, IMHO, and the text's blood-libel is a drag on a brilliant composition. Europe in the 18th cty was like that.
