The Salvation Army’s Worship Arts team has released a new single, ‘Christ of Calvary’, in time for Easter.

 

Written by Dan Casey and Luke O’Dea of Revolution Worship, a platform for new music within The Salvation Army, the track can be heard here and will be available on streaming services Spotify and iTunes from Friday (15 March).

 

“We thought it’s a really good song for Easter, focusing on the death and resurrection of Jesus, but it can be used anytime,” explains Dan, Worship Arts Coordinator. “We wanted to actually get back to the primary focus of Easter. It’s not just a symbol, it’s an event.”


Each year, the worship arts team publishes a list of songs recommended for use at Easter from various resources. However, written in Adelaide and recorded in Newcastle this year, a resource made specifically for the Salvos is being released. 

 

“A big thing for us is all about refocusing on Jesus,” Dan says. “We approached this saying ‘How can we get people’s attention on Jesus, and this is what naturally came. It felt quite spiritual, to be honest. We had one part come to both of us while we were singing together, the rest from there. It just worked.”

 

The Worship Arts team is passionate about seeing creative arts continually lead people to encounters with Jesus. Revolution Worship is releasing a six-track EP in the coming months, which has been written and will soon be recorded. Christ of Calvary is the first single of that release. Music and chord charts for the song are available for free, and lyric videos are published online.

 

“While in the past we’ve focused on a youth song or a Sunday song, this song is made to be accessible by anyone and everyone,” Dan says. “I think it has that appeal. It works whether you have an acoustic guitar or a full band. You should be able to play this, and it makes sense to your setting.”


‘Christ of Calvary’ is also available on the MySalvos Easter toolkit here and on the Mission Resources toolkit page here
