An emotional retelling of the Prodigal Son parable. Set for SATB or treble voices, the vocal writing is earnest and melodically rich. A poignant B section expresses the conflict in this parable, while the return of the A section offers compelling assurance of grace and forgiveness. Add the optional cello for a deep, warm timbre.
Arranger: Lynn Shaw Bailey and Becki Slagle Mayo
Text: William J. Kirkpatrick and Lynn Shaw Bailey
Season: General, Lent
