35005323, SATB, $2.50
This engaging Easter piece by Mark Hayes is an original composition, set in the style of a gospel song or spiritual. Strophic in form, the first two verses ask, “Didn’t I see my Lord, prayin’ in the garden,” and “…hanging on that tree?” making this anthem suitable for Lent as well as Easter. The 3rd verse quotes the well-known song, “Were You There?” while affirming, “I didn’t see Him rise, but I know He is alive, for He lives inside of me.” Because of the accessible partwriting and substantial repetition, this anthem could be learned in 2 or 3 rehearsals. The piano accompaniment features gospel harmonies, easy syncopated rhythms, and is playable by any good intermediate pianist. Check this anthem out as an alternative to the “traditional” Easter piece.
