It Is Well With My Soul (An Easter Cantata for SATB choir, Soloist Congregation). Composed by John Purifoy. For SAB choir. Cantatas. Eastertide, Sacred. Choral octavo. Duration 35 minutes. Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.55-1016L).
A serious, but triumphant musical expression of the message of the Easter story; a loving Savior willing to die to secure our salvation, giving the Christian a deep, abiding sense of peace and confidence that, no matter what the challenge, "It is well with my soul." This marvelous truth of the Christian faith is given new expression in the captivating music, traditional texts, familiar hymn tunes, and inspiring new melodies for choir, soloists and congregation. Narrations, taken from scriptures, may be read by one narrator or divided among members of the choir. The choral writing is strongly supported by sturdy, creative accompaniments and hymn sheets are provided for duplication to involve the congregation in the worship experience. Instrumental parts for Flute, Oboe, Trumpets I & II, F Horn, Trombone, and Tuba are available separately.
