Upon This Rock - SA/TB Part-dominant Rehearsal CDs (reproducible). (The Passion, the Question, the Call). By Pepper Choplin. Cantatas. Holy Week, Eastertide, Sacred. Part-dominant rehearsal CDs (reproducible). Published by Lorenz Publishing Company (LO.99-3103L).
Using Peter as the sole narrator and the dramatic focal point, "Upon This Rock" depicts the events of Holy Week while revealing Peter's personal perspective on the significance of each. Jesus' appearances to His disciples during those confusing and discouraging post-resurrection days are also included, as the plans for building God's church and spreading the Gospel are beautifully and dramatically portrayed through the creativity of composer Pepper Choplin. This unique presentation combines original material with best-selling favorites to create an extraordinarily accessible work for most choirs, including those who might normally sing from an SAB edition. "Upon This Rock" is indeed a representation of the very genesis of Christianity as we know it today, having as its foundation the solid Rock of Jesus and the steadfast devotion of Peter, whom Jesus proclaimed as His Rock.
