The Third Article - SATB with Piano 1-25 copies

from Catechism Cataclysm: A Musical by Jay Beech & Dave Eliason


Is your confirmation class more like a Catechism Cataclysm? This 50 minute rock musical chronicles the adventures of one such class struggling with their memory work. They need to pass the big exam in order to go on the canoe trip. The most unique feature of this work is that composers Jay Beech and Dave Eliason have set several sections of Luther's Small Catechism to music. This resource can be done as a stage production, but the recording is is also widely used as a learning tool.


“I believe that I cannot believe by my own understanding or strength,”
The above statement gives a great deal of insight into how Lutherans understand the grace of God as it relates to faith and works. In this text, borrowed from his explanation of the third article of the Apostles' Creed, Martin Luther suggests that we can't even believe without the help of the Holy Spirit. The song features a big gospel-style chorus arrangement with a soloist.

SATB vocal parts plus piano score and guitar chords in concert keys of C and D major. Score has been re-typeset from the version published in Catechism Cataclysm in 1991. - PDF
