Description

Setting of the chorale Christ is erstanden for 2-part choir (women and men), two trumpets (optional), and organ. Chorale verses are interspersed with wonderful organ-trumpet ritornelli. Exciting and effective.

Christ the Lord is risen again, Christ has broken ev'ry chain.
Now through all the world it rings that the Lamb is King of Kings; Alleluia!
Christ our Paschal Lamb indeed, Christ, today your people feed; Alleluia!

He who gave for us this life, who for us endured the strife,
takes our sin and guilt away, That with angels we may say "Alleluia!"
Christ our Paschal Lamb indeed, Christ, today your people feed; Alleluia!

He who bore all pain and loss, comfort less upon the cross,
 is exalted now to save, wresting vict'ry from the grave; Alleluia!
Christ our Paschal Lamb indeed, Christ, today your people feed; Alleluia!
