|Voicing: SATB with solos|
|Cast: 10 men, 1 woman, plus extras|
|Performance Time: 59 min|
|Suggested Use: Easter pageants, Palm Sunday concert|
|Style: Inspirational, dramatic|
|Performance Details: This is a dramatic musical that has a cast and requires a crowd or choir for several scenes. Unlike choral musicals where the choir may remain stationary, it is best if the choir serves as the crowd in traditional biblical costume for Bow the Knee. If you have a particularly large choir, you might choose to have part of the choir stationary while others play parts in the cast. The choir would be in contemporary clothing or choir robes.|
Offering two staging options, either a semi-dramatic musical or a fully costumed pageant, this Easter work offers several "pull-out" songs for the Lenten or Easter season, including Palm Sunday. Accessible vocal parts and orchestrations that churches will find acceptably challenging and a director's production guide offering specific ideas and "how-to's" for a creative presentation make this a great offering for Easter.
