Resurrection Morning, Glorious Day by Robert Sterling. For Choral (SATB). Glory Sound Easter. Octavo. 12 pages. Published by GlorySound (HL.35028600).
Scripture: John 20:1-8; I Corinthians 15:4
A rousing opener for Easter celebrations, this festive anthem captures a robust “Americana” feel both in its melodic content and its joyful abandon. A rhythmically vital approach punctuates the main theme while contrasting solo passages provide an oasis of expressivity as it unfolds the story of Christ's crucifixion and victory over the grave. Brief yet powerful, this delightful offering will be a surprising change of pace for church choirs. Duration: ca. 2:56.
