Keith Getty and Stuart Townend's contemporary hymn gets a stunning new choral treatment from arranger, Lloyd Larson, just in time for the Easter season. This theologically driven anthem builds from the simple affirmation, "In Christ alone my hope is found; he is my light, my strength, my song," then traces the birth, death and crowning glory of the resurrected Lord, who "bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave rose again," culminating with the final return of Christ. The hint of "The Solid Rock" that Lloyd drops in at the end is a perfect coda to this powerful presentation. The addition of brass and percussion heightens the dramatic impact and sets this arrangement apart from all the rest. The Brass packet contains a Conductor's Score and parts for: 2 B-flat Trumpets, Trombone, Horn, Tuba, Percussion and Timpani.
