Philipians2: 7-8 –But [he] made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
“He made Himself of no reputation,” recitative from The Crucifixion (1887), an oratorio for SATB choir and organ composed by Sir John Stainer (1840-1901)
7. He made himself of no reputation - The Crucifixion - Stainer
7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
The upper part of the Panel contains the subject of Stainer’s anthem “I saw the Lord.” The prophet Isaiah, with outstretched arms, kneels near an altar, from the smoke of which arises the vision — Christ enthroned and encircled by Seraphim.
