jamming: New York Hymns- Songs for Lent

I don't know if jamming is the right way to necessarily put it, but you should certainly check out this free offering/compilation/devotional project by New York Hymns available for stream/download at NoiseTrade.  It reimagines the Stations of the Cross through newly written and newly arranged tunes.  Some of the stand-outs include buddy Bruce Benedict's meditation (track 5) on Jesus meeting his mother on the road to Golgotha, an unbelievably poignant Bowerbirdsian rumination by Benj Pocta on Christ being stripped of his garments (track 13), and of course Jason Harrod's resurrection song (the final song).  I thoroughly appreciate and commend this project.
