Easter Music

Music testifies of Christ in a powerful way, especially at Easter. I hope we enjoy inspiring and holy music throughout the Easter season! Some of the below pieces are geared toward younger children and some not. There is praising music for Palm Sunday, music connecting us with the crucifixion, and music that pertains to the entire season. Handel’s Messiah was originally written as an Easter anthem. Here are few of many possibilities:

In Christ Alone filmed at the Garden Tomb in Arabic, Hebrew & English

Tabernacle Choir singing Hosanna; Tabernacle Choir Handel’s Messiah Hallelujah Chorus

He is Risen, From Stories of Jesus Album Melanie Hoffman, available on Apple Music for purchase

Risen by Shawna Edwards; The Miracle by Shawna Edwards

Tabernacle Choir He is Risen; Easter Concert with the Tabernacle Choir 60 min

Hilary Weeks wrote a new Easter song in 2024 here on Instagram, I haven’t seen sheet music yet.

Music Especially for Palm Sunday along the theme of hosanna and praising: Ain’t got time to die (my favorite, it is fun and catchy; Hosanna from Children’s songbook; Praise to the Lord, the Almighty; All Creatures of our God and King with the tabernacle choir; Hosanna from Lamb of God; Hallelujah in Hebrew that is just moving!!! How Great thou art
