“Easter music” as a genre doesn’t have the same general appeal as “Christmas music” does. But like Elder Gary E. Stevenson quoted in his general conference talk last April, “Take Christmas away, and in biblical terms, you lose two chapters at the front of Matthew and Luke, nothing else. Take Easter away, and you don’t have a New Testament; you don’t have a Christianity.” And we believe that inspiring, beautiful music is one of the most powerful ways to invite the Spirit into your home and help center your family’s Easter celebrations on the Savior.

So here are some of the powerful, Christ-centered hymns we’re playing on repeat this spring.
