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 <i>Still My Son</i> to the regret of Peter in <i>It Should Have Been Me</i>. The musical can be of almost any length since each monologue and anthem may be used independently. However <b>We Were There</b> is used, it will provide a powerful Holy Week resource for years to come. <br>Words and Music by Pepper Choplin; Orchestrated by Brant Adams and Stan Pethel<br>
