A Lenten Cantata

MARCH 26, 2017

CLEAR LAKE – A powerful  cantata depicting the last days of Christ, “The Lenten Sketches”, will be presented at First Congregational Church at 10 a.m. Sunday March 26.

Heartfelt narration, evocative choral anthems and instrumentation will be combined with a PowerPoint displaying classic works of sacred art for this worship of contemplation and reflection.

  “As we gather together to reflect and pray, may our art be redeemed by divine purpose and our music motivated by the spirit of worship,” wrote Composer Joseph Martin.  “May we offer our simple gifts of sound and sight as a testimony to the faith we long to honor and share.”

The cantata will feature Margaret Tue as pianist, Vernon Johnson as narrator and the First Congregational Church Choir, with Worship Coordinator Marta Eenhuis .
