This new 2008 edition of Christ Lives incorporates 22 upgraded tracks, including newly recorded live choir performances from the past 3 years, the new version of Children of God, and 7 re-mixed songs with additional instrumental accompaniment.
In the tradition of Handel's Messiah, Christ Lives is a contemporary Oratorio that vividly brings to life the deep meaning of Christ's life. Composed after Swami Kriyananda visited the Holy Land in 1983, Christ Lives brilliantly captures the profoundly inspiring and uplifting experience that he felt as he traveled in the footsteps of Jesus. Moved to share that inspiration with the world, Kriyananda composed this Oratorio, already considered by many to be a contemporary masterpiece.
In this re-recorded version, complete with instrumentals, vocal recitatives, ensembles and full choir pieces, Christ Lives is performed by an eighty-five voice choir, featuring forty solo and choral pieces and seven instrumentals.
As music alone can do, the Oratorio reaches the soul with both the message and spirit of Christ's life, and his call to all seekers to awaken the Divine within.
The World Brotherhood Choir has won numerous musical awards including the Adelaide Ristori Award, the Presidential Cup, and First Prize in the National Festival of World Peace. In 1989 they sang for Pope John-Paul II at the Vatican.
