"It is good to see a piano arrangement of William Billings' canon, which is especially appropriate for use during Holy Week. The piece needs to be played with great sensitivity. I find the temp marking to be too restrictive. Technically not difficult, but a challenge to interpret musically. Recommended." -Cross Accent, January 1998
William Billings' canon for "When Jesus Wept" is often used in Holy Week, and Robin Nixon has created an effective and honest arrangement for piano solo of this simple but poignant song.
