Updated Easter Music Series – Index (2014 and 2015)

Last updated 18 April 2015.  (I’ll aim to update this every Saturday during Easter)

During the Easter Octave of 2014, we posted some great Easter music.  I intend to post more throughout this Eastertide (my schedule and internet connection permitting!).  So here’s an index of our Easter Music Series entries so you can go back and find any great songs you might have missed.

Songs are grouped by Music Subcategory:

1. CCM Classics for Easter  (CCM from early 70s – early 90s.  Includes artists such as 2nd Chapter of Acts, the Imperials, Keith Green, Dallas Holm, Sandi Patty & Larnelle Harris, DeGarmo & Key, Amy Grant, Michael Card, Benny Hester, Bob Bennett, Leslie Phillips, Glad, Petra…)  [Some classic “Gospel” music is in this category too – Jesse Dixon, Andre Crouch….]

2. Easter Hymns & Classical

3. Easter Worship Songs  (Contemporary worship songs from songwriters such as Graham Kendrick, Stuart Townend, Keith & Kristyn Getty, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, etc.)

4. “Contemporary CCM”  (CCM songs from the mid-90s to the present, includes artists such as Andrew Peterson, Steven Curtis Chapman, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns, Natalie Grant, MercyMe, Mark Schultz, ThirdDay…)

5. World Music for Easter

PLEASE READ these two important notes: 

1) Any music I have uploaded is music I have legally bought and paid for.  I HIGHLY value copyright and want to ensure artists get credit and royalties for their work.  Please respect music copyrights.  In almost every music post I have provided a link (often to the iTunes US store because that is handy for me to link) as to where you can purchase the song(s).  In some cases the post will have an embedded MP3 files.  Sometimes that’s because the albums are out of print.  In a few other cases it was because I was having problems with WordPress’ audio playlist feature.  Please do NOT download music from Lent & Beyond, but purchase the songs if you enjoy them!

2) I have gone back through posts from 2014 and prior years that are linked here to try and make sure all the links are working.  If you find a broken link, we’d greatly appreciate it if you would leave a comment telling us so I can fix it.  Thanks.
