Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday are big celebrations in the life of the church and since they come back-to-back in the church calendar, it's one of the busiest weeks of the year for church musicians! Last week, I shared a few favorite anthems for Lent.
Today, I'm sharing a few ideas for Palm Sunday and Easter - from tried-and-true classics to anthems that are hot-off-the-press! Many also offer optional instrumental parts (brass, percussion, handbells), depending on the resources you have available.
Anthems for Palm Sunday and Easter
Ride On, King Jesus (arr. Howard Helvey)
SATB Choir, A Cappella
This is a fun, classic arrangement of the traditional Palm Sunday spiritual. A little more challenging than others on this list, but worth it if you have the forces!
