The Living Last Words

In this powerful work, Ruth Elaine Schram imagines the responses of other witnesses at Calvary, creating short dramatic monologues for each. Her remarkable score conveys Christ's words deftly and passionately, and the music is both tuneful and easily prepared. Appropriate for choirs of all sizes, it offers a small-orchestra accompaniment as well as an intimate instrumental reduction. Suggestions for staging, costumes, and props are also provided. Two options are offered for the conclusion: for Lent and Holy Week, performances can end contemplatively with the congregation singing the beloved folk hymn What Wondrous Love Is This, while an alternate triumphant chorus of Alleluias is perfect for Easter worship
