Praise to the Lord (Cantata)
“Praise to the Lord” is an hour-long cantata celebrating our Savior, Jesus Christ.
This program is voiced for SSAATTBB, soloists and piano, with optional scores included for organ, flute, oboe (or other treble C-instrument), and cello, and it’s somewhat challenging.
Most of the cello score includes only those passages where the cello needs to play a specific part. The cellist may follow the bass line in the organ score for other passages as desired.
There are five narrators for the program. Narrators 1 and 2 have most of the spoken parts. Narrator 2 sings solo sections in “Because He Spoke to Me” and “The Prodigal.” Narrator 3 is the mother of the child soloist in “A Place in His Arms.” Narrator 4 is a soloist with one spoken passage preceding “His Tears Were Mine.” Narrator 5 is a soloist with one spoken passage preceding “He is There.”
