Written to commemorate the Passion of Christ, this cantata is a moving tribute to His life and ministry. Composed for maximum flexibility and scored for SA(T)B voices, the optional cued notes make it possible for the cantata to grow with your choir. Smaller choirs will enjoy the rich textures and larger ensembles will be able to engage their full resources. For churches that desire an instrumental component, a very modest consort instrumentation creates a reverent accompaniment. The narration contains scriptures and prayers to convey the graceful theme of Christ's sacrificial love. Ending with the crucifixion, A Gathering of Grace will set the stage for Easter morning.
Songs include: Prelude of Shadows; In the Stillness of This Moment; Ask of Me; Palm Branches; A Light in the Upper Room; Jesus, in Gethsemane; The Day the Cross Held Up the Sky; A Green Hill Far Away; Recessional.
Score and Parts (fl, cl, hn, perc, pno, hp, vn, vc) available as a Printed Edition and as a digital download.
