It used to be that before Easter, as a music leader, I would be on a search for songs to be sung for Easter.
I started reminiscing of songs that we have sung through the years. This Easter, I decided to post links to choir songs that I have loved through the years.
The oldest one I remember is from the 70s, Henry Jackson’s He Didn’t Have To Do It. My list includes another Henry Jackson song, Only Jesus, Him Alone, recorded here by the Voices of Christ with Helen Stephens.
He Decided To Die, Donald Vails, My Soul Loves Jesus
He Lives with Beverly Crawford, recorded on Bishop Carlton Pearson’s The Best of Azusa
For God So Loved the World, Vanessa Bell Armstrong
It Wasn’t The Nails, Mississippi Mass Choir featuring Milton Biggham
Nobody But Jesus, Vanessa Bell Armstrong.
Celebrate the King, Ricky Dillard and New G.
Calvary, Richard Smallwood & Vision
His Blood Still Works, Vashawn Mitchell, Triumphant
No Greater Love, GMWA Mass Choir
These are just a few, but I think my favorite is Matthew 28 by Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers.
