I would describe this 6-minute composition as an example of Program music which musically depicts a story line or an event. In this case it represents the day Christ was tried, convicted and crucified. 

Two main themes permeate this composition; fragments of the famous hymn “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” represents Christ and the short fanfares represent Rome’s involvement in his crucifixion.
