The sound track to the Shadows of Grossmunster musical. Includes 12 tracks.

The Shadows of Grossmunster is a dramatic musical retelling of the story of early Anabaptism. The musical begins with the importance of the printing press and the religious situation in Europe in the 16th century, and goes on to portray the commitment of the young reformers, including Felix Manx and their debates with Ulrich Zwingli in Zurich, Switzerland. After the reformers re-baptize each other, they are arrested and thrown in prison. They manage to escape, but Manz is seized again and drowned in the nearby river when he refuses to recant.

"The power of this dramatic work comes through the emphasis on faithfulness, especially as expressed in the songs. Although the Anabaptists are scattered, and some are martyred, the musical ends with a powerful song of hope." -- Barb Draper, Canadian Mennonite
