The Jesus Story tells, in words and music, the story of the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as recounted in the New Testament Gospels. Inspired by the stories of Jesus, I wrote these songs at different times over the last 40 or so years. They are now brought together, along with the narration, to enable people of all ages to experience the power of the Gospel narrative in a fresh way.
I hope that The Jesus Story will be performed widely by choirs belonging to churches, schools and other groups. The score and soundtrack are freely available, and choirs are also free to make their own arrangements, as long as the words and melody line remain as written, and copyright is observed.
As the musical covers the whole story of Jesus, you may wish to use the whole or part of the score in your production. Individual songs may be chosen to be used at a particular event or seasonal church service. There are several songs suitable for children.
The Jesus Story has been used by churches in the past for fundraising. I do not require any royalties, and so all of the profit from any concert you put on will go to your designated charity.
Friends have contributed to The Jesus Story. In particular I would like to thank Janet Roberts, Sue Glover, Stephen Buckman, Julian Watson and my dear wife, Sylvia.
Writing these songs has been a blessing from God to me over the years. I hope and pray that singing them will be a blessing both to you and to those you share them with.
