We Welcome Glad Easter composed by Michael Bedford. For unison/2-part choir, organ and congregation (with optional trumpet). Hymns of Faith Series. Sacred Anthem, Eastertide. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA1080).
Especially suited for older children's choirs, this delightful arrangement of the familiar Easter hymn abounds with cheer and exhilaration. A dance-like organ accompaniment along with a regal trumpet part depicts the glorious jubilation felt by the women who discovered the empty tomb, and the angel who proclaimed to them, "Your Savior is not here! He is risen!" For the final stanza, the congregation and children's choir join together singing, "Then raise your glad voices, all Christians, and sing, bring glad Easter praises to Jesus, your King!
