Description

SATB a cappella. This is a fabulous setting of the 12th century German Kyrieleis (you'll recognize it as Victimae Paschali laudes) retaining all the flavor of the medieval tune. Perfect for your Easter Vigil or Easter morning.

Christ is arisen!

Christ, the Lord, is risen today,
All on earth with angels say,
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Love’s redeeming work is done,
Fought the fight, the battle won,
Death in vain forbids His rise,
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!

Lives again our glorious King,
Where, O death, is now thy sting?
Once He died our souls to save,
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Christ is arisen! Alleluia!
