Happy Easter

11 04 2009

In celebration of Easter, a pretty important day for us Christians, I wanted to post a few of my favorite gospel songs.  I hope they touch you on this special day.

“How Great Thou Art” was always one of my grandmother’s favorites.  I love it.  Elvis really nailed it.  His voice later in life was perfect for this kind of song.

Maybe I’m a sap, but I practically tear up when I hear “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes.  Little in life moves me like this song.  This song is all over youtube, but I liked this version the best.

Few instruments are as “mystical” as the bagpipes . . . calls to mind the lonely, barren Scottish highlands, the howling wind, and couples it to some ancient place writ in all of us . . . with the sitar, the top two instruments that take me someplace else immediately.
