New Lent and Easter Music for 2019!
Joel's new cantata, "Who Is Jesus?" is sure to create an unforgettable Lenten experience for your congregation. This 30-minute Tenebrae service is woven with warm, familiar gospel spirituals and culminates in Joel's own classic arrangement of "O Sacred Head, Now Wounded." Depending on your resources, this can be performed with a chamber accompaniment of 5 instruments, or a combination of piano and organ, or a recorded CD track, or just piano. No matter how it's performed, "Who Is Jesus?" will affect audiences with its beauty, thoughtfulness and passion. For details, click here.
