We are Pascha People: New Music

Just in time for Holy Week and Pascha I give a musical project called "We are Pascha People" recorded under the moniker Roodscreen. Recorded during Lent 2013, this album takes you into the contemplative desert of Lent, the institution of the Eucharist on Holy Thursday, mourning with Mary at the Cross, lamenting at the tomb, into Hades on Holy Saturday, then to the empty tomb on Easter Sunday.

Some of the songs will appear on the Roodscreen album "Calm of the Stormdriven" later this year. Like all Roodscreen projects, it will be a thematic album, this time about our Blessed Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary.
