Considering Matthew Shepard
Perhaps one of the most important major works of our time. The Chicago Tribune wrote: Moving among styles ranging from Lutheran hymnody to blues to Broadway, this modern-day Passion will move many listeners to tears even as it reaches beyond tragedy to peace, understanding and forgiveness.
