Easter Monday TACT "RISEN" song

‘Hallelujah is My Song' was written for, and first performed at, the Easter Monday ‘RISEN' event in 2014.

As current restrictions meant we couldn't meet to sing it together again this year, members of the original choir, who are all from local churches, have enjoyed making this recording. We hope you enjoy it - please feel free to share, and email links around.
