Overview

With all the interest in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ and the huge sales of its accompanying soundtrack, it was just a matter of time before the first of the "inspired by" releases would hit stores. The Christ: His Passion comes to us courtesy of the folks behind the City on a Hill series, and all but three tracks are from previous City on a Hill releases. But where most such projects can be tossed aside as mere marketing ploys, in this case there's a real value to hearing City on a Hill's music within the specific framework of the Passion story. Picking songs that directly apply to the Passion ("Jesus Went to the Garden," "Communion," "Were You There when They Crucified My Lord," "The Stone"), The Christ: His Passion evolves into a cohesive musical journey that is both timely and timeless. Performers include City on a Hill regulars Derek Webb and Cliff & Danielle Young (all formerly of Caedmon's Call), Leigh Nash (Sixpence None the Richer), Mac Powell (Third Day), Jars of Clay, Bebo Norman, and newcomers Casting Crowns, all performing in the series' signature form of alternative pop. Of note: Passion is the first in a trilogy of similar projects that will be released in the next year, focusing on the story of Christ; still to come: His Birth and His Life.
