ISBN 9781495049828. 6.75x10.5 inches.

This major sacred work is musically inspired by traditional spirituals and tells of the ministry, passion and resurrection of Jesus through familiar repurposed tunes, narration and scriptures. Two endings are provided, one for Holy Week and one with a jubilant Easter finale, making this a versatile and inspiring work for a variety of Spring programming. From the rhythmic vitality of “Ride On, King Jesus” to the languishing strains of “They Crucified My Lord,” from the stately dignity of “Give Me Jesus” to the festive joy of “Great Day,” this work delivers both ministry and artistry. Whether presented with Brant Adams' inspired orchestrations, or with piano alone, you will find A Journey to Hope a unique and effective cantata experience.

Songs include: Prelude; The Call to Faith; The Call to Follow; Peace for the Journey; Ride On, King Jesus; Come to the Welcome Table; Gethsemane; Jesus Walked to Calvary; They Crucified My Lord; Great Day! The Lord Is Risen!
