Passacaglia on "Stricken Smitten and Afflicted"





I have written several different pieces over the course of my career that used as their basis the Lenten hymn "Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted." Though this is the most recent, I began work on it quite a few years ago and then laid it aside. As with so many of my works I stumbled upon the promising start several years later, and the intervening time had lent me the ability to complete what I had once abandoned.
