The Wounds was expertly composed by British composer James Whitbourn, for SATB chorus, Speaker, Violin, Cello, and Organ. This selection includes the full Vocal score. Whitbourn's international reputation as a composer began very early on as a programme maker at the BBC.
“The Wounds is intended as a devotional work and is best heard in the context of a liturgical event in - or close to - Passiontide. Each section continues from the previous one without pause to create a seamless whole.” James Whitbourn
In the January/February 2015 edition of Choir & Organ, Jeremy Summerly writes that "the honesty and directness of the presentation of music and words...will be seriously appealing."
