    Anyone know of a very easy Easter cantata that would be good for a smaller choir with no experience along with a music director with no experience?

    Please, this is a serious question! If anyone knows of anything, please respond! Thanks...

    Brentwood's "Ready to Sing" has several easy Easter collections.

    Lillenas' "Easy 2 Excel" line should have some Easter stuff.

    I could use all the help I can get here...we have no music director, but plenty of people who like singing. I'm the pastor, not the music director - but I think I'm the only one that can teach them the parts (but only if they're simple).

    WOW. You have twice as many as me.
    In that case, Brentwood's "A Simple Easter" collection or the "Ready to Sing" Collection should be great. Also Lillenas' "Easy 2 Excel" collections as I stated before.

    SIMPLE SERIES

    READY TO SING

    Any of those would be worth looking into. It may be easier to sing if you find a 2-part musical.

    Word Music

    Written in Red by Robert Sterling

    Unison / 2-Part Singing (although voiced to sound like more)

    30-35 Minutes long with narration

    WONDERFUL musical!

    Songs include:
    A Great Joy
    Call Him Messiah
    Lift High the Lord, Our Banner
    Thy Will, Not My Will
    Cross of Love
    Beneath the Cross of Jesus
    Written in Red
    No More Night
