Once Upon a Morning is a delightfully creative and vivid musical telling of the days after Christ’s Resurrection, beginning with the discovery of the empty tomb and depicting the instances when Jesus appeared to His disciples. From start to finish, Pepper Choplin’s creative spark shines through this unique, storybook-like work spanning from Easter through Pentecost. Songs ranging from the rhythmically charged to smooth ballads, conversational passages between soloists, and optional congregational participation are sure to inspire your choir and congregation to reflect with awe on these key events following the Resurrection. The narration is based primarily on direct scripture passages and can be recited by either one for multiple different narrators. 45 minutes.
