Description

Two-part mixed voices and Organ or Piano. A stunning and effective setting of Iste Confessor (Rouen church melody). A different take on the well-known hymn text, but wow, is it beautiful! Choirs love it!  Also available for SATB.

Ah, holy Jesus, how hast thou offended,
That man to judge thee hath in hate pretended?
By foes derided, by thine own rejected,
O most afflicted.

Who was the guilty?
Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus hath undone thee.
'Twas I Lord, Jesus, I it was denied thee:
I crucified thee.

Lo, the good Shepherd for the sheep is offered:
The slave hath sinned, and the Son hath suffered:
For man's atonement, while he nothing heedeth,
God intercedeth. Amen.
