Description

Mixed choir (SATB with divisi) with soprano solo throughout. A new setting of the "O sons and daughters" text. An exciting, challenging piece with echoes of a folksong style.

O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of Heaven, the glorious King,
Over death today rose triumphing.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

That Easter morn, at break of day,
The faithful women went their way
To seek the tomb where Jesus lay.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

An angel clad in white they see,
Who sat, and spake unto the three,
“Your Lord doth go to Galilee.”
Alleluia! Alleluia!

On this most holy day of days,
To God your voices raise,
In laud, and jubilee, and praise.
Alleluia! Alleluia!
