Psalm 118:1-2, Psalm 118:14-24, Isaiah 65:17-25, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-18, Acts 10:34-43, 1 Corinthians 15:19-26.
This triumphant medley of hymn tunes opens with a joyful choral fanfare that will really set the tone for Easter worship. The choir and (opt.) congregation join in singing the first verse of The Day of Resurrection. For the slower middle verse, which reflects upon Christâ€™s passion, the choir sings the second verse of The Day of Resurrection, but brilliantly paired with the tune from the Passion chorale, O Sacred Head, Now Wounded. The joyful "alleluia" fanfare returns, signaling the third verse, which is ingeniously paired with the tune Aurelia, commonly known as The Churchâ€™s One Foundation. Chorusing "alleluias" provide a fitting conclusion, and (opt.) solo trumpet or brass and percussion add a regal touch.
