Stricken, Smitten, And Afflicted by Fernando Ortega

I’ve been listening to Fernando Ortega’s new album The Crucifixion Of Jesus for a few weeks now.
A grouping of songs and readings dealing with the portions of the Gospels that recount the passion of Jesus, the album as a whole is a very satisfying listen, and the sum of the whole enhances appreciation of the various facets.
Ortega has collected the tracks very thoughtfully.
Which is to say that songs like Thomas Kelly’s lyrics and the tune O Mein Jesu, Ich Muss Sterben, better known in English as the hymn Stricken, Smitten, And Afflicted are even better when you hear them in their album context.
Here’s a lyric video of the album track.
