From the composer who brought you Tapestry of Light, The Rose of Calvary
& The Lenten Sketches
, comes a new work filled with the music of grace. The life of Christ is dramatically presented in this choral cantata that tells the gospel story using American folk songs & hymns. Filled with time-honored tunes & texts, this masterfully arranged work will connect with the congregation & choir alike.
Divided into 3 sections: Ministry, Humility & Victory -- this cantata can be done progressively throughout Lent, Holy Week, & Eastertide, or it can be performed as one large celebration of the life of Christ. The miracle & blessing of Christ's earthly ministry, the humility of His passion & the victory of His resurrection fill this work with emotion & power. Thoughtful narration & spectacular orchestrations crown the cantata with variety & skill. Optional moments for congregational participation are included to incorporate your community of faith.
