This skillful arrangement of the popular hymn tune CRUCIFER makes a perfect postlude for Easter Sunday. The toccata-like writing of the organ accompanies the tune, which is carried by the brass. A key change and broadening of the tempo in the final stanza brings this piece to a triumphant end. This setting is also appropriate for your Passiontide and other celebrations.
