"A dramatic anthem for Easter Even, Easter Sunrise or Easter Tide." Unison voices and organ. Text from the ancient Easter Vigil chant, the Exsultet.
This is the night when all who believe in Christ are delivered from the gloom of sin, and are restored to grace and holiness of life. This is the night when Christ broke the bond of death and hell, and rose victorious from the grave. How wonderful, beyond our knowing, O God, is your loving-kindness and mercy to us, that to redeem a slave you gave a Son, sacrificed a Son.
