Here is a plug for my Uncle's Oratorio.
"The Living Word" by Christopher J. Archer
The Living Word is a work for choir, orchestra, organ and soloists. It was premiered in 1999 at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Auckland. It is a great piece of music and is being performed again at St Heliers Presbyterian this Easter. He has a short documentary on the original production at YouTube.
