Music for the Great Three Days by Heidi Dybing

Were You There is an African American spiritual that was first printed on paper in 1899.  In 1940 it was the first spiritual to be included in a church hymnal, of the Episcopal Church.

I don’t think I have ever attended a Good Friday service that we did not sing this beautiful, poignant hymn.   

As before, close your eyes, draw pictures in your mind and then be silent.  Were You There?
