Forsaken is a moving cantata for Holy Week and Easter from the creative team of Mark Hayes, John Parker, and Audra Parker who brought you Let Heaven and Nature Sing Gloria! Eight choral pieces correspond to eight days in the life of Christ from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday. Audra Parker's narration, easily performed by two people, summarizes the events of the week and carries the theme of Christ as God's Forsaken.Hayes' melodies and harmonies cover a spectrum of colors, dynamics and emotions from the joyous, rhythmic setting of "Hosanna! We Sing!" for Palm Sunday and the jubilant "Praise the God of Resurrection" for Easter to the somber "Death Lay Heavy" for Good Friday. John Parker's texts, filled with joy and pathos, help us experience Holy Week in a profoundly new way. Forsaken may be performed in concert style with piano, accompaniment track, or full orchestra.
