Christmas, Easter and the Second coming of Christ are three of the biggest seasons and topics in a given church year, and finding great music to address them is paramount. In his debut work with Prism Music, The Cradle, The Cross, The Crown, arranger and orchestrator Cody McVey has created a masterful inspirational collection to meet those needs. Focusing on songs the celebrate the entire life of Christ, and His promised return, this collection could be performed in its entirety as a seasonal celebration, or as multiple seasonal collections of the songs chosen for the specific seasons of Christmas and Easter. Spanning multiple genres, this collection contains songs ranging from up-tempo Southern Gospel, congregational friendly modern worship, and dramatically arranged ballads that will inspire both congregants and musicians alike. Featuring songs written by some of today’s most prolific songwriters like Rodney Griffin, Rebecca Peck, Joseph Habedank, Jeff Bumgardner and others, you’ll find opportunities not only to feature your choir, but also small groups, trios and soloists. Not only will The Cradle, The Cross, The Crown work for your seasonal needs, you’ll also find that many of these songs transfer perfectly into non-seasonal anthems to be used again and again throughout the year.
