Kyle Johnson has taken the traditional canon “When Jesus Wept” and creatively deconstructed it. We never hear more than two parts in canon with each other at the same time. Then he introduces a new counter-melody in the other parts and fills out the harmonies in other ways. While the words can be lost in the traditional four-part canon, the overall effect of Johnson’s approach is to create a moving meditation on the text. Easily accessible and highly recommended for small SATB choirs, but any size group will appreciate the artistry of this piece.
