This performance conducted by the composer: “JUDASKUSS” (The Kiss of Judas) is the first movement of A Living Triptych. (“Christi Mutter” is the second movement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vV3P… ) Judas “explains” why he felt forced to betray Jesus. [Transl. from German] “I was just fulfilling the scriptures. He urged me to do it, so I had to go. [When the soldiers came], I kissed him. They seized him and dragged him off. He gave me my fate. He died for you on the cross, and as for me – I went out and hanged myself.” Du bitter Reue, Scham und Gram! [“You bitter regret, shame, and sorrow!] Text by Josef Weinheber (1892-1945).
