A sacred cantata based on early American songs; “The Song Everlasting,” by Joseph M. Martin. A combination of hymns, spirituals, and folk songs are used to present the Gospel story of the life of Christ.
The cantata is divided into three parts: Ministry, Humility and Victory. Each section includes a congregational hymn of response to allow the congregation to respond to the wonderful story of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. Thoughtful narration, provided by John and Marilyn Bright, accompanies the work while a spectacular full orchestration crowns the cantata with variety and skill.
Martin says, “Music reaches deep into our hearts and calls us to reflection. It surrounds us with sound and invites our spirits to soar in celebration. When shared with sincerity, song transcends the walls that separate us and builds bridges of understanding among all people. On the wings of music, we can express the deepest emotions of our lives and explore the victories and mysteries of our faith.”
