On Easter morning, April 16 at 11 am, the Chancel Choir will perform Sacred Places. It is a new cantata based on early American folk songs and hymns. Sacred Places explores the story of Christ’s ministry, passion and resurrection, all emphasizing the locations where these great moments occurred: the Sea of Galilee, the Wedding at Cana, the Sermon on the Mount, Jerusalem, the Upper Room, the Garden of Gethsemane, Calvary, and the Garden of Resurrection. With poignant narrations and scripture this will be a memorable cantata as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.
The Crucifixion by John Stainer will be performed on Good Friday, April 14 at 7 pm in the sanctuary. First Presbyterian performed this work in 1994 on Palm Sunday. The Crucifixion is a meditation on the sacred passion of the Holy Redeemer. We will have guest soloists and chorus from Catawba College to augment our own Chancel Choir. The work is a cantata that has two main characters; the evangelist or narrator who sings the passion and Jesus who sings of His own passion.
