In My Place is a poignant musical journey following Christ to the cross. It is a compelling reminder of the sacrifice that Jesus willingly made as He gave His life for each of us. Craig Courtney's masterful compositions and Pamela Stewart's inspired narrative will facilitate a memorable and meaningful worship experience for Lent or Holy Week. The music is a distinctive blend of original melodies and creative hymn settings. The narrative focuses on the observations of five first-hand witnesses to Christ's final hours: Judas, Peter, the thief on the cross, the Roman centurion, and a crowd member who called for Christ's death. Moving, dramatic, and life-changing are all appropriate descriptors of this exceptional Craig Courtney cantata.
