WASHINGTON, DC — As Christians turned to virtual services on Easter, Washington National Cathedral celebrated in a memorable way. The cathedral livestreamed its Easter service on Sunday, April 12 and included a choir and orchestra with more than 600 participants.
A little over halfway through the service, the Episcopal Church Virtual Choir and Orchestra joined the livestream to perform the Easter hymn “The Strife is O’er, the Battle Done.” Members sang or performed their instruments at home through video technology. Hundreds of faces appeared at once several times in the video, and some members got time in the spotlight.
The approximately hour and a half Easter service featured the Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and Most Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Washington National Cathedral. You can watch the full service below and see the virtual choir and orchestra perform at approximately 1:06:43.
