Not as serious though IMO.

Hmmm..somehow i disagree. FWP is the kind of work you need to get into it. It's marvelously structured and it's been a while since i had the pleasure of listening to a 32 minute movement without getting bored not a sec.

Melody is not necessary for a piece to become memorable. Besides, check the third movement. There is a pretty memorable hymn waving in and out the whole 19 minute movement.
Goldenthal's oratorio is a great piece of music which needs to be discovered in order to be fully appreciated.
