Blog April 2nd Easter 2021

Mustard Seed Songs’ first musical was “His Story,” the second “Risen! The Musical” and we are working on our third musical right now- it was originally titled “Acts The Musical” but has recently been retitled “Theophilus- The Musical”…. but more of that next week.
This Easter I would like to share three Mustard Seed songs from these musicals. Next blog will be a track from “Theophilus- The Musical” but this week it is “The Triumphal Entry featuring the Mustard Seed Soul Band from “His Story” and it can be found at 31 mins and 30 secs on this link The tune to this song was written by Chris Wickland, who was a member of the Band and who is now Pastor at the Living Word Church (see blog January 30th 2020.) Chris kindly allowed me to “borrow” his tune for the lyrics which portray Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on what is now called “Palm Sunday.”
“One Day A Crown” is taken from “Risen! The Musical.” It is the second of our videos and has been chosen for Good Friday. The song was originally called “A Crown Today A Cross Tomorrow” and a beautiful performance by Lucy Stimpson- Maynard and Lucy Jane Rutherford can be seen at 39 mins 09 secs, again on the “His Story” YouTube link above
The song “Risen” is the third video and is again from “Risen! The Musical.” It is, of course, to celebrate Easter Sunday.

Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart.
