This hymn was first translated into English in 1752 by John Gambold (1711–1771), an Anglican vicar in Oxfordshire. His translation begins, "O Head so full of bruises." In 1830 a new translation of the hymn was made by an American Presbyterian minister, James Waddel Alexander (1804-1859). Alexander's translation, beginning "O sacred head, now wounded," became one of the most widely used in 19th and 20th-century hymnals. [Wikipedia]

This setting is for a large mixed ensemble or Orchestra but will work well with smaller combinations of instruments. Concert Band parts included. It has been arranged to fit the singing of the 4 verses of the traditional words. There is a descant in the 2nd and 4th verses…
