The theme and celebratory nature of this new, 15-minute musical is just right for Easter Sunday morning worship, leaving enough time for other elements of the service. While the entire work can be sung in unison, there are a few optional voice divisions available to you. And you can assign these however you wish, the choice is yours! Because the opening and closing medleys in this musical include lots of familiar material, the option of including the congregation on these selections is obvious. The narrations are taken exclusively from the book of John I, so the theme of God's love in Christ is prominent. The narrator may read these passages dressed in street clothes. Or, for added dramatic effect, you may choose to have the narrator portray the apostle John, dressed in biblical attire, and reading as if from his actual letters.
