Church Cantatas for Lent & Easter

Lead your congregation in Lenten or Easter worship with one of these dynamic cantatas!

Canticle of the Cross by Joseph Martin
Inspired by Celtic music traditions, this new work for Lent or Holy Week presents Christ’s journey to the cross. Utilizing folk songs, hymns and newly composed sacred songs, the music adorns the heart-felt message of God’s love and grace displayed in Christ’s redemptive work on Calvary. A thoughtful narration weaves the movements of the work together with Scripture, prayer and poetry, while delivering a reflective message of hope and assurance. Gentle orchestrations capture the Celtic spirit of the music in a smaller, more restrained approach in keeping with Holy Week considerations. A full line of support products is available.

Wondrous Love by Lloyd Larson
The disciple John penned these words: “This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (I John 4:9-10). With this incomparable love as its central theme, “Wondrous Love” recounts the earthly life and ministry of Jesus, which ultimately led Him down a path of sacrifice and death on the cross. This blending of original and familiar melodies along with poignant and scripture-based narration provides compelling rendition of the events leading to the cross. Flexibly conceived for Lent and/or Holy Week, each individual anthem may be presented during the weeks leading up to Easter, or “Wondrous Love” may be performed as a whole with or without the resurrection finale. Small and large choirs will equally appreciate Lloyd Larson’s beautiful choral writing, and accompaniments ranging from piano only or full orchestra to professionally recorded CDs offer numerous options for your unique programming needs.
