With ancient hymns and religious rock bands, Christians from around the world are celebrating Easter Sunday in Jerusalem.

Armenian Christians in ornate robes are holding a ceremony in the dark, incense-filled chambers of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Many Christians believe Jesus was crucified, buried and then resurrected on Easter Sunday at this site.

Outside the Old City, members of Protestant church groups held their own celebration among the trees of the site known as the Garden Tomb, where some traditions say Jesus was buried.

Two guitarists, a drummer and a keyboard player led hundreds of worshippers in English prayer.

"All hail, redeemer, for thou hast died for me," they sang, some raising their hands and closing their eyes.
