Bring the Passion Story and its impact to life through moving music and Pamela Stewart’s compelling narrative: from the euphoria surrounding Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem to the desolation of the lonely Garden as He fully embraced God’s plan and ensuing death; from the genuine love conveyed to His faithful followers in the Upper Room to the loneliness experienced in His final hours as those same followers rejected and abandoned Him; from the anger that filled the hearts of those who now called for His crucifixion to the tender resignation of a Roman soldier that this indeed was the Son of God; from utter despair as He died on a cross to triumphant joy as Christ’s followers began to realize that His prophetic words had become reality. All of this and so much more happened within a single week!
Combining the compositional talents of Lloyd Larson, Faye López, R. Kevin Boesiger, Larry Shackley, Molly Ijames, Mark Hayes, and Pepper Choplin, this inspiring cantata provides an unforgettable worship experience. It can be used in segments for use throughout Lent or Holy Week or performed in its entirety. With options for choir and piano alone or the addition of either a live orchestra or the accompaniment tracks (available separately), “Hallelujah! What a Savior!” is a powerful resource for choirs large or small.
