The Music of God’s Masterpiece

A group of singers, in Bible costumes, with Keith Ward playing his clarinet.


This captivating Christian musical drama introduces five original, fully orchestrated songs by the accomplished writer, composer, and arranger, Keith Ward. In addition to the sweeping grandeur of his original music, Keith reintroduces four familiar hymns of the church with fresh arrangements that usher the audience into a time of personal, emotional connection with the timeless story of the passion of Jesus Christ.

This awe-inspiring Christian Easter passion play gives the audience time to think, time to feel, and time to react emotionally to the phenomenal miracle of God becoming man, then dying to redeem humanity, His greatest treasure.

The music of God’s Masterpiece is a stirring musical “quilt” of classic hymns and original songs written and arranged by Keith Ward. Years before the creation of God’s Masterpiece, Keith wrote songs, with God’s inspiration, that would become part of the beautiful sounds of God’s Masterpiece. Keith is an artist, and his “canvas” is the hearts of the audience as they experience the impact of God’s message through music.
