The music of Easter is here at last. It’s time to celebrate!
All these presentations, all these hours of music since Ash Wednesday have led us to this moment—at the foot of the cross.
Our music today is poignant—have the tissues handy. But it is necessary for us to hear. And remember: the victory has already been won!
“Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord.” Really? Because in mere days they’ll be shouting “Crucify Him!”
Some great music for reflection has been written more recently, and we’ll have some fine examples this week.
From Bach’s St. John Passion to John Rutter’s Requiem, we present music that helps us focus on the ultimate gift: salvation from the King of Love.
