'Death Has Ended' by James Ward
This is my all-time favorite Easter song for gospel choir - all the excitement one could want!
James Ward was a popular CCM artist in previous decades, and is now primarily a church music director and composer.
James has served in ministry to his home church, New City Fellowship in Chattanooga, Tennessee, since its beginning over 30 years ago. He currently works full time at New City Fellowship (PCA) as their music director. He holds a BA in music from Covenant College (1972) and a Masters in Music in jazz performance from the University of Tennessee (1996).
James has distinguished himself as a band leader and worship director for several Christian conventions including the National Youth Worker’s Convention, Jubilee Convention in Pittsburgh, and the Creation Festival in Pennsylvania.
I know James slightly, and become more and more impressed with his vision for multicultural worship music in North America.
