The Lenten Cantata is presented in an eighty-page booklet, measuring six and three quarters by ten and one half inches.  The Latin is superimposed over the English text and the performance time is approximately forty-five minutes.  At the beginning of each Word, the Introduction and the Conclusion, there is a short paragraph written in Latin and an adjacent paragraph written in English.  The Choral Conclusion of the Seven Last Words is preferably sung with the great organ.  The organ then doubles the voices with very soft stops - - gamba and voix celeste.

Composed of the complete organ score, including all choral and solo passages, 
the Dubois Seven Last Words of Christ may be ordered direct from:
