Narrator: alto or baritone; Jesus: tenor; Elijah and Messenger: low voices; The Word: several treble voices from the choir, or a single, thrilling tenor or soprano voice. Timpani and organ (pedal only) are suggested as optional, but they will make a dramatic difference. Handbells are essential. The liturgy is in three stations framed by a choral introit in Latin with bell ostinato. The first station presents I Kings 19:1-12 with solo voices, bells and timpani in dramatic free chant / arioso. The second station is a paraphrase of Matt. 17:1-9 for voice(s), drum set, two guitars and electric keyboard in rock ballad style. Suggested processional hymns include WAREHAM, ST. BEES, and MOWSLEY. Performance time c. 14 minutes if all hymns and readings used.
