This gem of chant-based choral writing by the late Trappist Father Chrysogonus Waddell is one of five anthems in the Easter-themed collection Christ Is Risen, Truly Risen! (wlp002311). Father Waddell's lifelong devotion to the liturgy of the Church shines through as he mines the text and melody of the offertory chant of Easter Monday from the Liber Usualis and transforms them into an anthem for parish choirs. The narrative refrain moves with breadth and is marked with subtle harmonic color and melismas. The verse offers musical contrast, starting with a brighter tempo and a more declamatory presentation. This is a worthy piece for the Easter season, and a fine vehicle for growing your singer's expressiveness through dynamic and stylistic contrast.
Topic:  Resurrection; Thanksgiving; Easter
Sunday of the Year:  Easter Sunday; Easter season
