You Are the Christ! (Peter's Reflection on the Life Death & Resurrection). By Lloyd Larson. For SATB choir (with optional orchestration). Cantatas. Eastertide, Sacred. Choral octavo. Duration 40 minutes. Published by Exaltation Publications (LO.55-1078L).
Brash...bold...transparent...volatile...all are characteristics used to describe Peter, the most distinctive of Jesus' disciples. Yet the special bond between Peter and Jesus is unquestioned. Jesus once asked, "Who do you say that I am?" It was Peter who immediately replied on behalf of the disciples; "You are the Christ!" Created by Lloyd Larson and David Burke, this cantata provides an insightful look into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. A practical resource for the seasons of Lend and Eastertide, each of the ten anthems may be used individually as choral anthems in addition to being presented as a single larger work. It is a moving and personal reflection of Jesus through the eyes of perhaps his most devoted follower. Performance time: 40 minutes.
