Created and composed by Lloyd Larson, Who Do You Say That I Am? invites choir, narrators, and congregation to experience anew the earthly life of Jesus, seeing His life, ministry, death, and resurrection through the eyes of front-row participants, whose varied answers to the title question reveal the Messiah, Emmanuel, gifted Teacher, the miracle Worker, the King of Glory, the King above all kings, a Man of Sorrows, the sacrificial Lamb of God, and the triumphant Lord of Life, the Son of the living God.
This extended work, suitable for the Lenten season, may be presented in multiple segments during Lent or throughout Holy Week. It may also be performed in its entirety as a single 35-minute work, culminating with a resurrection anthem or saving that final chapter of the story for Easter Sunday. The short dramatic monologues may be presented from memory by actors in costume or by narrators reading the scripts from the cantata book. Available in SATB or SAB versions, this flexible work may be presented effectively with piano accompaniment alone or with the full orchestration created by Brant Adams, utilizing the accompaniment CD or live instrumentalists.
