Lead your congregation in Holy Week and Easter worship with one of these dynamic cantatas, as recommended by Stanton’s expert Sacred Choral Music staff!
The Passion and the Promise by Lloyd Larson & Mark Hayes
The many moods of Holy Week, followed by the triumph of Easter, are captured in this moving work by Lloyd Larson and Mark Hayes, with narration by Pamela Stewart. From the celebration of Palm Sunday to the despair of Good Friday to the triumph of the Resurrection, “The Passion and the Promise” presents fresh, dynamic words and music with creative narration. Perform each anthem separately during Holy Week and Easter, or together as an unforgettable 25-minute musical.
The Final Hours by Lee & Susan Dengler
Create a moving worship experience for your church and community with “The Final Hours.” Three moving anthems are woven together with the spoken word, focusing on Christ’s final earthly hours. Perfect for a Good Friday service, or performed as separate anthems during Holy Week, this suite is easily prepared and presented. Add the optional flute, cello, and single handbell to enhance the presentation. A great choice for smaller choirs or when time to prepare a larger work is limited. It will surely bring your congregation to a place of reverence, inspiration, and celebration.
