A Journey to Hope
A collection of gospel songs and spirituals incorporating the cantata "A Journey To Hope" by Joseph Martin
We have inherited all these beautiful and stirring songs from the countless African-American slaves who first composed and compiled them.
The cantata ‘A Journey to Hope’ is musically inspired and tells of the ministry, passion and resurrection of Jesus through familiar repurposed tunes, narration and scriptures. From the rhythmic vitality of "Ride On, King Jesus" to the languishing strains of "They Crucified My Lord," from the stately dignity of "Give Me Jesus" to the festive joy of "Great Day," this work delivers both ministry and artistry.
We hope that you will find ‘A Journey to Hope’ a unique and effective cantata experience.
