Queerying Lent Music

The season of Lent is upon us and I've cultivated (and have had some technical difficulties in which Spotify removed all of my recently added songs, so am still cultivating) another playlist!

As with past playlists, the music comes from a variety of styles, queerying the boundaries that we have set up between what is deemed "religious," "secular," and even "profane."  This is definitely a labor of love for me as I am not particularly musically oriented and I am very grateful to many friends who have suggested songs for this list.

The themes of Lent that I focused on for this playlist are: the cycles of life and death, mortality, repentance, reconciliation, covenants or promises, refocusing or commitment, and the theology of the cross.

While the first song on the playlist is quite intentional, the playlist itself is not listed intentionally.  So, unlike Epiphany, but similar to Christmas, it would probably be better if set to shuffle.  As always, let me know if you have any suggestions to add to the list or questions about what is on the list or why!
