Now the Green Blade Rises (Choral Score) by Michael Burkhardt. For SATB choir, optional congregation, organ, brass quartet or brass quintet, timpani, handbells. Easter. Moderately Easy. Choral Score. Published by MorningStar Music Publishers (MN.60-4010).
The tune NOEL NOUVELET, all dressed up in its Easter garb, is presented here as a festive hymn setting. An attention-getting introduction for organ is followed by four verses in varied settings, ending triumphantly with the text "Love is come again, like wheat arising green." Fresh, yet familiar to your choir and congregation.
Organist may play from either Full Score or Choir Score.
