An Easter Story Spectacular, now on DVD Cotton Patch Gospel has been highly acclaimed by critics and public alike. This award-winning musical drama is a leg-slappin, toe-tappin, hand-clappin hoe-down of a story the retells the Gospels of Matthew and John translated into present day Southern vernacular. It brings the far away places of Nazareth, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem closer to home Atlanta and Valdosta, Georgia. From His birth in a Gainesville, Georgia, trailer to His Good Friday lynching and Easter Sunday victory, the story of Mary Davidsons son, Jesus, is presented musically with zest and uninhibited joy. The musical score is by the late Harry Chapin, founder of World Hunger Year and composer of such well known hits as Cats in the Cradle and Taxi. Harry Chapin considered himself born to write music for Cotton Patch Gospel . Cotton Patch Gospel is special. It is a rare dramatic presentation that succeeds in both entertaining us and sharing fresh insight into the Gospel the greatest story ever told.
