Rediscover the parable of the Ten Virgins with an enthralling presentation that provides a personal, latter-day perspective to the classic New Testament story. Beautiful words and music give an identity and an individual story to each of the Ten Virgins. Each possesses a positive quality or virtue that could be wisely developed. But as their stories unfold, the struggles of their daily lives present each woman with choices that determine her path.
Will she prepare herself with lamps trimmed and burning when the Bridegroom comes? Or will she procrastinate and find herself left outside and alone?
With a stirring blend of songs, scripture, and narration, this musical program based on the well-known parable allows readers to relate to the actions and motives of the Ten Virgins.
I saw this production done years ago and it was beautiful. I would like to do it again for the sisters, however, I noticed that we now have to pay $100 + to do so. Is that right?
I love this book, and I am reading it over and over again!
I have always loved this parable, but this story brought even more meaning to it for me. We preformed this last night for the sisters in my branch, and it was so spiritual! It was such a wonderful evening. Everyone worked so hard and did a beautiful job. The songs are wonderful and very meaningful. I can see myself in so many of the women that are talked about, and it makes me want to try so much harder to be ready when He comes for me.
I have enjoyed the CD so much, the book is also a great addition to my library. The CD captures the spirit of each virgin within each of us. The book has a wonderful story to it and wonderful pictures. I recommend both!
I came right home after our beautiful Relief Society Enrichment Evening and our special Ten Virgins program full of gratitude and absolute amazement at how perfect everything turned out! Everyone, and I mean everyone that was there was totally blown away with the entire story and music. There wasn't a dry eye in the chapel. We ended the evening with a sister speaking and bringing it all together for everyone. After she spoke began singing 'When he comes for me' joined by all the other soloists and virgins. It was captivating! The whole experience has been such a testimony builder to myself as well as the 'virgins' and others who performed the program or helped in the planning of it. My daughter just used the same program last night for her YW Evening of Excellence program. It was absolutely beautiful.
I love this CD! It is kinda like Women at the Well. It goes great with the book, so get that too. It really helps me to identify with how we may resemble each of the virgins...foolish AND wise
Honestly, with a name like Tyler Castleton, I expected a better product. The songs aren't very good, and most of the singers are even worse. I was not impressed at all. It seems like it's going for a 'Women at the Well' kind of thing, but fails miserably.
I fell in love with the Ten Virgins book when it was released last fall and I have given it to all my friends for their birthdays this year. Now for Christmas I'll be giving them the CD!! The music really brings the characters to life through songs every woman can relate to. With music by top LDS artists, including gorgeous interludes by Kurt Bestor, it is everything I hoped it would be. It's a must-have for anyone who loved the book or who loves inspiring, uplifting music!
