My New Easter Musical 

(Click cover to listen to excerpt.)




Words and Music by Pepper Choplin;  Orchestrated by Brant Adams and Stan Pethel

Inspired by the spiritual, “Were You There,” this musical experience is based on several monologues by those who were at the cross. The work leads us through many emotions: from the Holy Love shown to Mary Magdalene, to the intimacy of Mother Mary’s Still My Son, to the regret of Peter in It Should Have Been Me. The musical can be of almost any length since each monologue and anthem may be used independently. However We Were There is used, it will provide a powerful Holy Week resource for years to come. Maximum length if all pieces are used: 55 minutes

Song Titles: Were You There? • Holy Love • Christ Is Our Brother • Surely This Was the Son of God • How Can It Be? • Still My Son • It Should Have Been Me • We Were There • At the Cross  GlorySound
