Marcus Hummon is the Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter husband of author and 2016 CNN Hero Award winner Becca Stevens. With a grant from Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, he has created a cantata based on narratives from the gospels - and a five-session book that gives some of the musical history of each piece as well as reflections on its theological significance written by Stevens.
The Passion book may be used in conjunction with the CD or MP3, sold separately, which includes twelve cuts, with six of those being songs and six being scripture readings. The musical score is also available for separate purchase. Book, score, full CD/MP3, and individual tracks may be used individually or together, providing flexible programming options. Churches could choose to study the text during the Sundays in Lent or at weeknight Lenten evening programs, with the choir performing the piece on Palm Sunday or during Holy Week. The book and/or CD or MP3 are also perfect for personal devotional use.
