“If an enemy were insulting me,
I could endure it;
if a foe were rising against me,
I could hide.
But it is you, a man like myself,
my companion, my close friend,
with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship
at the house of God,
as we walked about
among the worshipers.”
Ely Cathedral Choir sing the hauntingly beautiful ‘The Reproaches’ by the composer John Sanders (1933-2003).
Published by RSCM it is ‘One of the glories of music for Passiontide, you’ll hear the Sanders Reproaches sung in nearly every cathedral on Good Friday. The Sanders Reproaches is quite simply the most sublime piece of music.’
