Easter Sunday morning will sparkle with this bright new resurrection anthem in triple meter from Mark Hayes! From the first alleluia to the last, Hayes writes with an energetic quality that sustains excitement and trumpets the good news of Christ’s resurrection and victory over death. Hayes uses some 2-part polyphonic writing and a short contrapuntal section, which segues into the final jubilant chorus. The piano part is toccata-like in nature and flows easily under the hand. Add the brass quintet and percussion parts for a truly glorious experience.
