This original ballad pairs a stately, chordal accompaniment with a moving, folk-style melody and text. Patti Drennan and Donald Kouri have joined forces to create a moving anthem incorporating a haunting minor key supported by either organ or piano. The movement between major and minor tonalities depicts Jesus's later life through His crucifixion and the promise of His return. An impressive and very meaningful recounting of Christ's journey to the cross, this anthem is a must for the Easter season! The addition of the oboe obbligato adds plaintive emotion. I Hear Someone A-Comin' is poignant and powerful. Those who remember Drennan's highly successful He Chose to Die will not want to miss this one.
