Written in a traditional style and inspired by the celebrated “lessons and carols” format, Testimony of Life presents the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Comprised of choral anthems, Scripture and congregational songs, the work also divides easily into three sections, enabling directors to present the work progressively through Lent and Easter. Choirs of any size will enjoy the thoughtful part writing and the easily learned melodies. From joyful celebrations of Christ's early ministry to the deep sadness of His suffering and crucifixion, from the shadowed whispers of Gethsemane to the brilliant alleluias of Easter, Testimony of Life is a thoughtful mix of artistry and ministry. A full line of support products is available to enhance your performance. Duration: approx. 40 minutes.
