This musical version of the Passion of Christ was written and revised from about 1974 through 1976 by John Steffensen, leader of the Ten-Sing choir Sanctus, from Åsane, Bergen, Norway.
The musical was first performed in autumn 1975 for an audience about and later for about 5000 at a KFUM gathering in Skien. Since then it has been performed fairly regularly in different parts of the country by different groups. The English translation, however, has to our knowledge only been performed once: by Leikanger Ten-Sing on a tour to Germany in 1984.
The idea of these video-sequences is to function as a kind of demo of the Ten-Sing musical "The Ballad of the Via Dolorosa" texted so the viewer can get some idea of how it would sound in English.A production from 1975 can't be simply reproduced nowadays without adaptation, but it will be worth the effort for those who wish to try.
