The Transfiguration was composed for the Choir of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, New York City, Frederick Grimes, Director.
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart,
and He was transfigured before them, and His garments became as white as light, and His face shone like the sun.
And behold, there appeared to Him Moses and Elijah, talking with Him. And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we here. If you wish, I will build three tabernacles here; one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.”
