1 Strummerson 1 year ago Regardless of faith and commitments, the story of Jesus of Nazareth's final Passover week is one of the most powerful stories ever told. One would expect it to have produced some amazing music. Yet if one asks me for a list of Christmas vs. Easter songs, one column has Oh Holy Night, The Little Drummer Boy, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlement, Silent Night, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, etc., while the other has...? I know there is some magnificent choral and liturgical associated with Easter. But songs? Where are the songs that express the drama, the mystery, the triumph over death and the harrowing of hell itself?Gotta admit, the best Easter songs, and they are only obliquely associated, are from U2's second album, October.
