This song was changed greatly during the progress of the script.
It even got a new tune (composed by Rosemary Thomas). In an early version Get Ready!
provided the link between John's preaching and the start of Jesus'
mission. In the final script it took its place as a choral fanfare
- a triumphant response to the resurrection of Jesus.
There is a lot to rejoice about in a play that features two
deaths and two resurrections!
