Canticle for Easter composed by Christopher Wordsworth and Joseph Barlowe, music by Franz Joseph Haydn and quoting from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Alleluia". Arranged by David Williams. Choir Sacred.

In this festive Easter anthem, David E. Williams combines both Haydn's beloved hymn tune "Austria" and portions of Mozart's "Alleluia." The effect is thrilling. Optional brass sextet (3/3) and tympani make this anthem one that, though not difficult, will stay with choir and congregation long after the "Alleluia!" has faded.
