(A Suite for Holy Week)Ruth Elaine Schram & Phillip Keveren - Jubilate Music
Here is an inspiring four-movement suite for Lent or Holy Week. It can be presented in its entirety or as individual movements throughout the season. The work opens with a short, meditative introduction quoting the spiritual Were You There and then moves into a jubilant Palm Sunday piece titled Hosanna! Christ Is King! Next is the reflective and poignantly beautiful How Great the Love of Jesus. The spiritual returns along with original musical content in the third movement. The suite ends with a lovely arrangement of the traditional When I Survey the Wondrous Cross with optional congregation involvement. Narration for two readers occurs between each of the four movements. Performance time: approximately 16 minutes.
