The Song of Mark
Item #: CD-356
A sense of the inevitable weaves through the Gospel of Mark and it is evident too in The Song of Mark, but there is much more going on here than anticipation over coming events. This musical leads us to make the refreshing discovery again as well. This memory reclaimed is the gift of true hope that Jesus provides the downtrodden and forsaken—the strength of God that is made perfect in weakness. Through Jesus, the nameless are given a voice that is heard. True to Mark's telling, the anonymous women storytellers in the chorus of The Song of Mark bear out a great understanding of what true discipleship means, greater even than the Apostles. At the end of the piece, in "The Song at the Empty Tomb," these voice of the faithful rise with Jesus and resonate the Good News.
