C Instrument, Oboe
Ephrem the Syrian, 4th c.; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 102:5
This is a reflective piece to consider for later in the Palm Sunday liturgy. The refrain presents the image of children laying flowers before the King; the verses reflect on the vanity of life, but also on the constancy of the Word. The music seems to strike a happy medium between recalling the joyful procession and anticipating the doleful crucifixion.

Palm Sunday, Palm Sunday B, Procession with Palms
Isaiah 40:8, Psalm 102:5
