Classic Resurrection Songs| Posted April 30, 2015
Celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is something that brings many families together. People who will seldom attend church make sure that they attend Easter Sunday in their Sunday's best. Across the country, songs of victory and joy about His resurrection are resonating through the sanctuaries and radios. RCA Inspiration compiled a list of great songs for the season with Risen: Powerful Resurrection Gospel Songs.
"Dramatic," "carefully arranged" and "beautiful" are a few ways to describe "They Didn't Know" by Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers. They paint a picture of the crucifixion, death and resurrection so vividly that it is no wonder why praise dancers and choirs have chosen to use this as their interpretation of what happened during those three days. Fred Hammond and Radical for Christ's "Communion Song" is also featured, and it is still mesmerizing..
Gospel enthusiasts will be thrilled that RCA included such classic songs as "Marvelous" by the late Walter Hawkins and Thomas Whitfield's "We Need A Word From the Lord." Gospel music is where it is today because people stood on the shoulders of those artists.
"We Give You Glory (feat Crystal Lewis)" from the recently departed Andrae Crouch helps to round out the songs by our gone but never forgotten giants. The latter screams "triumph" and "victory" about what Jesus did for us all.
I have been very impressed with the list of songs from RCA's Gotta Have Gospel: Christmas album. I am equally impressed with this album. The only weak point is that I do not think William Murphy's "You Reign" fit into this album very well. But even a song like "Now Behold the Lamb" by Kirk Franklin and the Family seems like a perfect fit, though it was initially featured on their Christmas album.
This is a good mixture of songs You can never go wrong when you have classic songs from some of the greatest Gospel artists. And, it's just that much better when it is about the Resurrection.
