Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ (2002) puts a unique life and passion into the final two chapters of the Gospel of Matthew. This is perhaps the most unusual Christian instrumental music there is. It represents Yelena's unique style and orchestration in its best: soothing new age sound, yet filled with spiritual depth and power. Like "The Birth of Emmanuel," this CD sets new directions in the Christian instrumental music mainstream.
From Yelena's Journal:
"Soon after the release of The Birth of Emmanuel CD, my friend listened to that CD while I was commenting on various details of that work. As the CD ended, my friend said something like, "I wish it would continue, I feel like hearing the rest of a story." I thought, indeed, the ending asked for a sequel.
If The Birth of Emmanuel was mainly about the sequence of historical events that reflected on the beginning of God's Salvation Plan, not much about Jesus as a person, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ focuses strictly around the personality and feelings of Jesus Christ who was born as a human, yet was God Himself having come to earth to die and be raised again in order to bring salvation to the humankind. In the Birth of Emmanuel, Jesus is still a baby, a child, maybe even a teenager; God in Him was still dormant, despite of Him being not like anyone else; and there was that soaring and tragic mystery about Emmanuel as He grew and formed to later having been awakened as the 33-years old Son of God with a clear understanding about the magnificent mission that He was to carry out in accordance with the ever-existed Father's Plan.
And now here is the Death and Resurrection, where Jesus is mature man whose mission is about to come to its climax, but the most difficult trial - indescribable pain, emotional and physical sufferings, agonizing death and, finally, the glorious resurrection - are all still ahead."
