Music has an important role to play in every Christian Festival and this CD seeks to support reflections on the Easter story.
The central piece, Anastasis, relates the aftermath of Palm Sunday, the horror of the crucifixion, the desolation felt by the disciples and the fear that Satan has 'robbed us of our hopes'. As the realisation grows that Christ is alive, great excitement is felt through the music and the message that 'Love's redeeming work is done' is sung with confidence and adoration.
Every member of the ISS has a personal Christian faith and they pray that these songs will inspire the listeners to have a deeper understanding of the risen Lord.
