Music For Easter

Although I’ve always liked the film and song Easter Parade, I wanted to go beyond that for this entry. I haven’t listened to all these yet, but here’s what seems to be a fabulous collection of options. This link is from BBC Music Magazine, which seems worth checking out any day of the week. Enjoy!

I also always liked “Lord of the Dance,” which is based on the Shaker hymn “Simple Gifts.” It’s featured on many Christmas CDs. “Home for the Holidays” by Schooner Fare is a favorite version. But it has always struck me as a better song for Easter.

I found this on YouTube. Pretty cool, at least to me.
