A Gnostic Passion

As we are nearing Easter again, I thought I would draw people's attention to my 'Gnostic Passion', composed in 2011/13. I like to think of this as a 'new take' on the traditional passion story, using texts from the Gospel of Marcion and Gnostic writers - perhaps a 'passion for our times'. It is of course closely modelled on Bach's immortal settings, however.
Too late for this year, of course, but I would dearly love to hear this piece performed by a real choir and orchestra instead of just in my head!
You can find the score on Score Exchange, here:
(If you click on the 'scorch' link you can get a 'playable' version which gives a reasonable idea of the music.
