This early work was composed for Easter Day and first performed with a reduced choir of trebles and a single bass. It has since become a favorite of Anglican musicians and was performed at Queen Elizabeth II's wedding to Prince Philip. This freshly engraved edition includes three staves to the organ part and a paragraph explaining the historical background and context of the work.
