From the composer of Song of the Shadows, Harvest of Sorrows and The Weeping Tree comes a brilliant new innovative cantata for Holy Week, The Lenten Sketches. The work is a series of tableaus illustrating the pivotal final days of Christ's earthly ministry, the triumphal entry, the last supper, the garden of Gethsemane and the crucifixion. With a performance time of approximately 30 minutes, the cantata is easily integrated into a worship event. There is a full line of support products available to help facilitate your presentation of this dramatic new work including a digital resource kit featuring art work, PowerPoint visuals, a Bible study, practice hints, interpretive movement options, plus a unique composer's commentary explaining some of the writer's perspective on the composition of the cantata. Expertly orchestrated by Brant Adams, this important work is destined to become a Lenten classic. Outstanding!

    I found this at a workshop with Joseph Martin present. He mentioned it, but nothing more. I brought it back home and fell in love. And I generally hate cantatas. They are usually cheesy and weak in spots. This is based on the last days of Christ's life and...

    is coupled with a splendid narrative and exquisite portraits used as visuals. Woven beautifully together, this was the most spiritually rewarding Good Friday service we have ever had.
