When we were growing up, Easter was always considered the start of spring. Getting a new ‘Easter outfit’ was a big deal. Once we wore our new outfit and new shoes to church, we could wear them to school.
After a week off from school, a ton of candy and new clothes, life seemed like it couldn’t get any better – until summer vacation.
As the cornerstone on which the Christian faith is built, Easter is the oldest feast of the Church, marking a time of renewal of faith and a time for celebration.
Aaron Copeland’s music always sounds like a celebration. Enjoy Appalachian Spring conducted by Francesco Maria Colombo performed live in Milan by Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi:
