The boys mother, a young widow, goes house to house asking the Jews where her son is, but they all lie to her. Jesus however puts the alleyway where the boy was murdered in the mothers thoughts, so she goes there and can hear her sons voice singing O Alma Redemptoris. The christians gather around to see the body and then they demand the Jews to be bound and hanged. The child continues to sing until he is buried completely and the pearl that the Virgin Mary placed on his tongue is taken.
