Welcome, friends, to our EASTERTIDE installment of WorshipSongsOnline. If you are a church musician, you are probably recovering from your recent ministerial labors. Lent, Holy Week, and Easter are among the most intense times of the liturgical season for most of us.
Our sacred journey to alleluia is one that winds itself through many important moments in the ministry of Jesus. These treasured times of reflection often draw us closer in our walk with Christ. It is sometimes in these quieter moments we are able hear the music of grace most clearly.
Now, Easter comes sweeping into our lives with a grand crescendo of life affirming alleluias. With unbounded joy we find our voice and celebrate. The cross becomes the great “plus mark” of our spiritual journey and our faith song, renewed and encouraged, soars on the wings of this divine declaration of life. Alleluia, Alleluia! Christ is risen, he is risen indeed!
We invite you to explore our bloggers as they share their thoughts about this most glorious of seasons. One special highlight is our composer of the month feature. This time we speak with composer/church musician Lloyd Larson about his music and ministry. Enjoy exploring all of the features of this WorshipSongsOnline, including listening to our SPRING releases and bestsellers. In just a few clicks you can experience full length recordings and even scrolling music features to help you connect with great new music for your choir. After all, Pentecost is just around the corner.
