We are fortunate to have a brilliant collection of Easter music from Father Chrysogonus titled Christ Is Risen, Truly Risen! (wlp CD 002311, music collection002312). The recording was completed shortly before his death in 2008. Throughout this collection, Father Chrysogonus has skillfully combined music and texts that span a period of time from early Gregorian monody through the twenty-first century. “Hail, O Festal Day of Days” (salve festa dies) is the magnificent Easter processional hymn by Venantius Fortunatus (c. 609), preserved here with only slight adjustments and the English translation and text underlay by Father Chrysogonus.
