"This is the day the Lord has made," an excerpt from Psalm 118, is often used as an introit on Easter. It would be appropriate for any festive worship service. Originally an antiphonal piece for double chorus (Haec Est Dies by Jacobus Gallus), this arrangement has the organ and bells in dialogue. Easy and majestic.
