Lamb of God: a sacred musical work

"There are events of life so sublime that they cannot be imagined without the companionship of beautiful music." 
 {Douglas L. Callister, Your Refined Heavenly Home}

The Easter season is such an event.

After being introduced to Rob Gardner's music several years ago his Lamb of God: A Sacred Work for Choir, Orchestra and Soloists has been a part of our Easter season worship. It is beautiful and moving. It tells the story of the last days of the life of Jesus Christ through the experiences of those who knew Him - the Apostles, Mary and Martha, Mary Magdalene. The music exemplifies the hope we all feel in the wonderful Atonement and Resurrection. One of my favorite pieces is featured below. Hosanna, the words that greeted Christ as he entered Jerusalem. While listening to this for the first time my daughter, Fudge, stated "It makes me feel so happy I can't help but cry!" Amen to that. Beautiful music always brings me to tears.

Watch and listen to a playlist to hear other works included in the CD. It is definitely worth your time!

I love this music so much I am personally sponsoring this giveaway for two readers to each win their own copy of this beautiful 2 CD collection.
