Joel Raney.

Not 'Who Was Jesus?' but 'Who Is Jesus?' The question is asked in the present tense because it's Christ's interaction with our lives in the here and now that is the focus of this 30 minute Tenebrae service. The events of Holy Week are presented through enticing arrangements of familiar hymns and spirituals plus narration, culminating with the crucifixion story in a moving rendition of 'O Sacred Head, Now Wounded.' There are opportunities to include vocal solos, as well as, congregational singing. The accompaniment can be provided by piano, CD track, or a chamber ensemble of five instruments. A further option is an organ part that can work with just piano or can be added to the chamber instruments. Finally, there are instructions for lighting and extinguishing seven candles ending in darkness with all softly singing of the first verse of 'Fairest Lord Jesus.'

Instrumental Parts: Conductor's Score, Organ, Flute, Oboe, Violin,Cello and Horn in F.

    Our congregation loves Tenebrae Services and this will be a welcome addition. Wonderful list of hymns that the choir loves to sing made fresh by Joel Raney.
